The north American aviation p-51 mustang was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during world war ii, the Korean war and other conflicts. The mustang was conceived, designed and built by north American aviation (NAA) in response to a specification issued directly to NAA by the British purchasing commission. The prototype na-73x airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days after the contract was signed and, with an engine installed, first flew on 26 October. The mustang was originally designed to use the Allison v-1710 engine, which had limited high-altitude performance. It was first flown operationally by the royal air force (RAF) as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber (mustang Mk I). The addition of the Rolls-Royce merlin to the p-51b/c model transformed the mustangs performance at altitudes above 15,000 ft., Giving it a much better performance that matched or bettered almost all of the Luftwaffes fighters at altitude. The definitive version, the p-51d, was powered by the Packard v-1650-7, a license-built version of the Rolls-Royce merlin 60 series two-stage two-speed supercharged engine, and armed with six.50 Caliber(12.7 Mm) m2 browning machine guns.
