Lend-leased to the Soviet Union, the P-39Q Airacobra gained fame battling the Luftwaffe in the eastern front. Come see what makes this tier VI Soviet fighter such a worthy adversary!

The main cannon is a beast. It's a solid credit earner.

 Intrigued by this aircraft ever since reading an aces of the pacific game manual back in the day. Mostly the landing gear config. look and mystery of underrated appeal. Always seemed to be an aircraft ahead of its time but plagued by production and logistics issues (I guess any non popular aircraft fits that cat.). iirc.even Yeager said words about its unused potential.

Keep the faith.

the XFL-1 was a plane prototype variant from the p-39 for the United States Navy , thats why the landing wheels were changed to allow landing on aircraft carriers, that didnt have the main interest of the P-39Q airacobra, the 37 mm M4 cannon,

the whole reason the engine was behind the pilot, on the p-39q, was to fit the 37mm cannon

 

BTW i used the XFL-1 during test, i dont own one, because is a preorder gift plane that isnt available for purchase since wowp release, and i havent purchased any preorder package
