North American Mustang Mk.III

Shown here is Mustang Mk.III, (FX893) being used for armament trials. Note that the plane is equipped with unusual rocket rails, each carrying a 27 kg (60 lb) SAP rocket above and below so that the single hardpoint on each wing could serve to launch two pairs of RPs. Like all RAF Mustang Mk.IIIs it is fitted with the Malcolm hood.
