    Nice start Steph. Since starting two P39s, I've grown to like the little beast, lots of options.

    Did the Russian P-39 still carry the 37mm cannon in the prop hub or did they use the 20mm?

    Apparently, they used the 37 mm canon on the P-39K. The 20 mm was used on P-39D-1
    Thanks for the "like"

    Nice start. I've always had a fondness for the P-39. Such a unique looking plane.
