The world famous P-51 Mustang was built by North American in response to the British Aircraft Purchasing Commission's request for modern high performance fighters, for use against the Luftwaffe. North American came up with the P-51 which featured the new concept of the Laminar wing. This gave the P-51 a big aerodynamic advantage, meaning an enhanced performance and range. The first Mustangs were powered by American Allinson engines which had poor performance over 15000ft, so they were used in low level roles. The Mustang Mk I was armed with four 0.303 machine guns in the wings and two 0.5 machine guns in the nose.
