The P-51C Mustang earned its reputation as one of the greatest fighters of the Second World War perhaps of all time. The replacement of the 1,100 hp Allison V-1710-39 engine in the original design to the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine brought the Mustang into the realm of excellence. This single seat fighter plane excelled with its deadly weaponry, high speed and long range maneuverability. This combination made the Mustang unparalleled as an escort fighter, interceptor and ground attacker, Also used for reconnaissance missions the Mustang proved its worth by staying active around the world well into the seventies.
