    The North American P-51 Mustang was designed for the RAF early in WW2. It entered combat service in 1942.

    Fitting Mustangs with the Rolls Royce Merlin engine made a good fighter into a great one, and with the addition of drop-tanks the allies had the long-range escort fighter they needed so badly.

    The Mustang 'B' was armed with 4 x 12.7mm machine guns, and could also carry drop-tanks or bombs.

    5 so far, but many more to come:

    P-51B the Dominican Republic Air Force 1948.
