The Ho 229 will out-turn you while the Me 262 will outrun you. with a battle rating of 4.0 (AB/SB) and 3.7 (RB). Testing of the two prototypes started in October of 1941. While the Mustang looks quite defensive on first glance, it is a deceptive one. While retaining all features the earlier versions may offer, its powerplant is upgraded. B. Compared to its German and British counterparts, it outperforms them by a fair amount in engine performance. This is one of the main advantages of American planes: powerful engines, to out-climb and out-speed most of their German counters, because most of the time, even a 1v1 turn-fight with a Bf 109 and Fw 190 will result of you being defeated assuming the pilot knows how to fly, in order to avoid this, Boom and Zoom is the best way to get a kill with a P-51H-5-NA.

It was considered to be superior to any other American fighter at the time, particularly at low level. It has a good climb rate which also gives it an option to put up a fight against jet encounters, being able to perform boom and zoom attacks as its energy retention is good. The armament of six .50 cal machine guns remained unchanged, but the ammunition stowage was modified. This sped up the re-arming process and also helped to improve the laminar flow of the wing, which had been impeded by the earlier ammunition door design. In game, the F-82E isn't very manoeuvrable, but its really fast and its guns are amazing. © 2010—2020 by Gaijin Entertainment. This is the "H" version of the P-51.

P-51H-5NA Mustang Realistic Battle, America's Top Tier Fighter. At the Supermarine factory, they did not have the data he was looking for so they simply weighed all the parts needed to build a Spitfire. The US Army approved a contract with North American Aviation to design and build a lightweight P-51 Mustang in July of 1943. This is especially helpful against armoured attackers such as the Stuka or IL-2. "The Need for Speed" is a worthy credo for all Mustangs. Additionally, the chin scoop for the engine was smaller than on previous versions. Only 93 of the new Mustangs made it to the RAF. But North American Aviation came with a counter proposal: to develop a completely new aircraft for the RAF… within four months. The engine will have a hard time hitting the "overheated" mark, even when using WEP. or Lacking climb rate and high altitude performance the Mustang pilot needs to wait for the combat to come down to about 4,000 m (13,000 ft). It has good ordnance, capable of shooting any aircraft down with relative ease, as well as being able to dodge incoming attacks by jets. Maintaining a cool head and areal observation are important. However, it can turn well at higher speeds, but doing so is more risky considering that other aircraft can dogfight better by turning at lower speeds at a greater rate. Climb: 14.8. That’s when the British Purchasing Commission approached North American Aviation to build Curtiss P-40 fighters under license. WEP in World War II aircraft. All rights reserved.

These aircraft were equipped with four 20 mm Hispano Mk.II cannons mounted in the wings. The armament is the true advantage of this aircraft. There, it will provide seasoned War Thunder pilots with an aircraft that is, simply put, a true joy to fly, whilst preparing players that are just about ready to jump into the jet era with the perfect aircraft to get used to high-speed dogfights! Only the lack of acceleration in prolonged dogfights is a trap that even experienced pilots still fall into. The second version was known as the P-51H-5-NA, featuring a new, taller tail than the earlier variants; 280 were produced. The U.S. Army was given fourth and tenth aircraft. The new batch was modified by fitting self sealing fuel tanks and replacing the earlier Mustang's eight machine guns with a new armament of four 20 mm cannon, to create the Mustang Mk.IA. Boom and Zoom attacks are the most effective against jets, as this manoeuvre mostly removes the speed out of the equation. Handling and speed are diminished when bombs are loaded, which is the same for all aircraft. Although this is caused by the too light air-frame which further causes vibrations and heavy shaking due to the wing-mounted position of all arms. 6 x 12.7 mm M2 Browning machine guns, wing-mounted (260 rpg outer + 260 rpg mid + 390 rpg inner = 1,820 total), 2 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs (1,000 lb total), 2 x 1,000 lb AN-M65A1 bombs (2,000 lb total), 6 x HVAR rockets + 2 x 250 lb AN-M57 bombs (500 lb total), 6 x HVAR rockets + 2 x 100 lb AN-M30A1 bombs (200 lb total), 6 x HVAR rockets + 2 x 500 lb AN-M64A1 bombs (1,000 lb total), Great top speed for a prop-driven aircraft, Respectable armament of 6 x 12.7mm (.50 calibre) machine guns, One of the most manoeuvrable P-51s in the game, .50 calibre machine guns aren't nearly as powerful compared to cannons, but will still do the job, High crew training and purchase cost - the same as the F-80A-5 Shooting Star, Can be up-tiered to fight against early jets, Limited WEP, once it runs out the planes performance drops dramatically. The Mustang would go on to serve the USAF in the Korean War, and was exported to over 50 foreign air forces. P-51H The final production Mustang, the P-51H, embodied the experience gained in the development of the lightweight XP-51F and XP-51G aircraft. P-51H-1-NA 44-64161, flown by Major J. D. Onerem, was used for extensive testing by the USAAF from the 4th of April to the 14th of April. The P-51H-5-NA handles much better than its predecessors. Coupled with its manoeuvrability and acceleration deficits, the P-51 punishes any pilot who does not play to its strength, namely the top speed. If jets are present, try not to drop your speeds too much, as you may need to dodge multiple shots. See more of P-51 Mustang - War Thunder/Ash Arms on Facebook.

However, with British and American interest in the fighter still growing, future variants of the Mustang would show yet more improvements. the devastating air-targets belt, 20 mm guns on the Mustang are mounted in close proximity, dealing a deadly double punch when hitting, Can be very deadly in the hands of a skilled pilot, Hispano cannons overheat extremely quickly and are inaccurate unless upgraded, Low ammo capacity compared to machine gun-armed variants. North American's chief of design, Edgar Schmued, visited the Supermarine and Rolls-Royce factories in England in February 1943. However this is for an altitude range up to 4,000 m (13,000 ft). The project was designated as the NA-105, and the contract specified five functioning prototypes for testing. There, he sought to discover how the Supermarine Spitfire was so much lighter than the Mustang, and also to choose a version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine to be used in the lightweight Mustang.

The primary module to focus on for early success is the 20 mm ammo belts. For this reason, the Mustangs were used in support of ground operations rather than in their intended original role as a fighter. The -9 gave less takeoff power than the V-1650-7, but with a water/alcohol mixture injection the wartime emergency power could be upped to 2,000 hp at 10,200 feet.

Without the instructor the manoeuvrability markedly improves in comparison, for the P-51 has generous stall characteristics and is an overall stable gun platform, as long as one does not pull the trigger. High altitude performance suffers which in combat, due the slow climb rate, is rarely reached anyway. The control surfaces lock up at high speeds which makes the Mustang a comparatively agile fighter when initiating combat, but this is quickly lost. These aircraft were originally named "Invader" by the USAAF, but soon changed to "Mustang" for consistency with the RAF version. The engineers attempted to reduce the weight on every part they could, and the result was an aircraft 600 pounds lighter than the earlier Mustangs. The North American P-51 was born when the British Government showed interest in purchasing the Curtiss P-40C. The P-51 Mustang can seem a very underwhelming aircraft at first. Its turn rate isn't as good as some other aircraft at its rank so don't get into long turning battles that take up large amounts of energy. Featured playstyles are Boom & Zoom, repeatedly diving on enemies and returning up high, and Boom & Run, flying into danger zone, picking of a target and retreating, all while running at top speed. The RAF received these aircraft behind schedule in October of 1941. The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang is an American longe-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and the Korean War, among other conflicts. It has been in the game since the start of the Open Beta Test prior to Update 1.27. The production model (NA-126) was designated as the P-51H, and it most closely resembled the XP-51F. A condition of the sale from North American to the British was to supply the U.S. Army with two samples free of charge. The P-51, when fully upgraded, is an extremely deadly opponent, especially as a rank II. Minimal elevator authority without the engine producing net thrust as the plane relies heavily on streamline effect along the tail for elevator authority. The Mustang saw combat early on in the country of Algeria. Now more than capable of competing across all altitude bands and boasting a particularly long range for a single engine fighter, the Mustang was rapidly evolving into one of the most capable air assets of the entire war. with a battle rating of 6.3 (AB/RB/SB). Due to the recently signed Lend Lease Act the U.S. Army was able to place an order for 150 more Mustangs on behalf of the British. The F-82E was two P-51H mustangs that connected wings and the tail fin. ... War Thunder Realistic Gameplay. The best way to use the advantages of the aircraft's speed and climb-rate is to use boom and zoom tactics. It turned out that the British had lower design standards for the Landing gear, angle of attack and side engine design loads. Finally, the Chinese P-51K has the same BR and, IIRC, uses the same engine and settings as the block 30, however P-51Ks usually had a different propeller, which I believe is very slightly worse. Overall this is a support fighter as in the current climbing meta engagements against higher flying interceptor-fighters are often deadly, as the Mustang then lacks the critical ability to choose the time of engagement. The plane may not climb very well but does retain the traits of an energy fight… The final variant was the P-51H-10-NA, of which 255 were completed. War Thunder American Realistic Battle (featuring P-51H-5NA). ...

Curtiss was at max production capacity, so the British inquired to North American Aviation if they would build it under license for them. An emergency dive to top speed will however fix this, if the pilot remembered to keep some altitude. Problems showed up immediately including the Allison power-plant and other design flaws. 360://https://wiki.warthunder.com/images/a/ae/Cockpit_p-51_mk1a_usaaf.jpg, [Skin] Fictional; USAAF motto "Aim high... fly, fight, win" - by, [Skin] RAF experimental marking scheme - by, [wwiiaircraftperformance.org] P-51 Mustang (Allison Engine) Performance Trials, https://wiki.warthunder.com/index.php?title=P-51&oldid=84688, 19.05 mm Steel - Upper engine cowl armour plate, 6.35 mm Steel - Fore cockpit armour plate, 15.87 mm Steel - Armour plate behind pilot's seat, 38 mm Bulletproof glass - Armoured windscreen, 4 x 20 mm Hispano Mk.II cannons, wing-mounted (125 rpg = 500 total), Gains access to British belt load-outs, incl. 360://https://wiki.warthunder.com/images/8/80/Cockpit_p-51h-5_na.jpg.
