P-51 Mustang

The North American P-51 Mustang is one of the most famous aircraft of World War II. An American design originally configured as a dive bomber, the plane was then considered for use as a fighter. However, its Allison engine was not equal to the task. The introduction of the British Rolls-Royce Merlin engine provided the power to develop a highly capable long-range fighter interceptor and escort for heavy bomber formations participating in deep penetration raids against German cities and industrial targets. The Mustang accounted for nearly 5,000 aerial kills during World War II.
