Pros and Cons
- The Highest top speed of any tier 6 aircraft excluding the Mosquito and the P-38J. 10 seconds of boost.
- Great climb rate and dive speed, excels at high-altitude fights
- Good roll
- Ties for highest HP pool among tier VI fighters currently available in-game with the La-5
- Guns take an eternity to overheat, also the top machine guns are the best of tier 6 overall.
- Poor damage per hit, will noticeably struggle against bombers and ground attack craft due to lack of autocannons.
- Iffy Maneuverability, a stock P-51A can be out-turned by Bf-109s.
The P 51A Mustang, the first true American fighter available to the player. A great plane for climbing high and executing all the planes that it dives on. Even though there is not much of great note to the P-51A on paper, in practice it can prove a rather flexible machine. It may not be as nimble as a Japanese or British fighter, but it can stay behind them long enough to do a number on them. It may not have the firepower of an La-5 or Yak-9, but the volume of bullets it can throw is not to be underestimated (along with how long it can spray those bullets). Due to its lack of autocannons, it is ill-advised to hunt ground attack craft or bombers with the P-51A unless they are severely damaged. Avoid low altitude fights with more agile planes like the spitfire and zero, and punish heavy fighters that try to make a pass on you with your exceptional speed.
