The P-51 “Mustang” was the answer to the Allied need for a long-range high performance fighter plane to escort heavy bombers deep over enemy territory. With a supercharged 12-cylinder Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, high copacity external fuel tanks, and six .50 caliber Browning M2 machine gun, the P51 could hold its own against any fighters the Axis could muster all the way to and from the bombing target. The P-51 could also be configured to carry bombs and 5″ rockets against ground targets, and was an effective fighter bomber in its own right. The P-51D was the most widely produced model of World War II and can be distinguished from earlier models by its bubble shaped canopy.
