North American P-51D "Mustang"
(P51D variant from the popular Wings of POWER P51D/H "Mustang" pack)
The North American P-51D Mustang has emerged as an icon, and is by far the most widely recognized piston fighter ever produced. The P51 allowed the United States to escort their bombers to Berlin and back. The p51 is a heavy, fast energy fighter and, in the right hands is lethal. It has a distinctive sound with its Merlin V-1650-7 engine with 1,720 horsepower.
Supermarine "Spitfire" Mk IA
The Spitfire stands to this day as one of the greatest piston fighters in aviation history. It is a light, maneuverable craft with low drag, elliptical wings, and a broad performance envelope. The result was the Spitfire, a capable, lethal, yet forgiving aircraft that proved more than equal to anything the Germans could throw at it.
Republic P-47D-20 "Thunderbolt"
(P47D-20 variant from the highly rated Wings of POWER P47D,M,N,XP72 "Thunderbolt" pack)
Equipped with a large, powerful radial engine, the P47 looked as tough as it was. Known as the "Jug", this aircraft was a mainstay of the Allied fighter fleet and, with its eight .50 caliber guns, was capable of shredding ground targets and airborne opponents alike. While it could not turn with Axis fighters such as the Fw 190 and Me 109, it could outdive both of these and had a zoom-climb capability that was amazing.
Messerschmitt Bf "109" E4
The Bf109 was Germany's premier, front-line fighter at the beginning of the war and was still being produced at the end. Designed by Messerschmitt and Lusser, the Bf109 first flew in May 1935. It was a powerful aircraft - in November 1937 the Bf109 V13 raised the world airspeed record for land-based planes to over 370 mph.
Mitsubishi A6M5 "Zero"
The "Zero" was extremely light and maneuverable, and packed a considerable wallop for the time. It was a delight to fly, excelling at low and medium speed acrobatics. Because of its low wing loading, it could turn very tightly at low speeds without stalling, and had a turning radius of as little as 630 feet in the lower speed range.
