The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters of World War II. Possessing excellent range and maneuverability, the P-51 operated primarily as a long-range escort fighter and ground attack fighter-bomber with bombs, rockets, and machine guns. The Mustang served in nearly every combat zone during WWII and proved to be what many consider the most successful fighter in history.
