Choose from 3 Aircraft - P-51D/K, or Reconnaisance Aircraft F-6D The legendary U.S. Air Force P-51D Mustang originally used a Hamilton Standard propeller, but shortages forced the U.S. to fit some models with an Aeroproducts propeller. They were renamed the P-51K and mainly assigned to the Asian Theater. The P-51K and P-51D possessed both speed and the ability to fly long-range missions, and could serve as bomber escorts or attack enemy ground installations themselves.
