One of the Most Famous and Effective Fighter Aircraft of World War II, the P-51 was Originally Designed to Fulfill a British Requirement Submitted in April 1940.The North American Aircraft Corporation was Contracted to Design and Build the New Fighter. Early Versions were Powered by 1,100-hp Allison Engines, but Later Models, Starting in 1943, Used the More Powerful Packard-Built Merlin V-1650.

The Merlin-Powered Mustangs were Exactly What the Allied Bombers in Europe Desperately Needed, and They Became Famous For Their Long Range and Potent High-Altitude Escort Capability.

The Most Significant Variant, the P-51D, Featured a 360-Degree-View Bubble Canopy, a Modified Rear fuse- large, and Six 12.77-mm Machine Guns. Along With the Fighter Role, Mustangs Were Used for Ground Attack and Reconnaissance. After 1945, Over 50 Air Forces Around the World Acquired and Used the Mustang for Many More Years, Some as Recently as the Early 1980s.
