P-51C / RAF Mustang III. A fantastic Anglo-American achievement. An American aircraft, built to a British specification. Powered by a Rolls Royce Merlin engine, licence built by Packard in America replaced the Allison V-12s . Regarded as the biggest improvement to the Mustangs performance, and one of the greatest weapons of WW2. 417 mph at 2,000 feet. Modified in Britain to utilise the 'Malcom' hood/canopy. This would become a very good platform for chasing the German V-1 flying bombs.
