Ok.. Heres another one..... Which aircraft, bomber or fighter, would u consider the Best Ground-Strafer...

Bomb loads are irrelevant..... Just the gun platform..... Targets are locomotives, troops, light armoured vehicles, buildings, aerodromes, trucks and so on.. NO SHIPPING.....

There are a few aircraft that come to mind on this....
Mosquito
Fw-190A
P-38J
P-47D
 
The first one, Les !! - The DH Mosquito.....

On model of the P-38 - I think it was the P-38L - had 2 .50cal gunpods on the wings which I believe were used for Strafing. If so, then this model gets my vote.
