See title.

 

The WoWp description given makes it sound almost like a Hurricane 2 but with the skin of a Mustang.

 

I'm on the fence on this one, collect? Fly? Forget?

I picked one up and had a lot of fun flying it.  The cannons really give the p51 the boost needed over the traditional. 50's

I picked one up during the last sale.  It's a pretty good premium :great:.

Off the top of my head the 1a is a good purchase if you enjoy the mustang line.  To compare to the Tornado, IIRC the Tornado is mid altitude and stalls easily if you try to go above its optimal alt, and is sluggish when you are at its maximum optimal altitude.

 

The Mustang 1a will perform well at altitude and against Bombers.

I don't fly the 1a a lot, but when I do, I enjoy it.

I found the Tornado to be a good blend of maneuverability, speed and firepower, even beyond its optimal altitude. The 1a seems to sacrifice speed and agility for those 20s, so it lives and dies on those cannons


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Thankfully Hispanos get the job done even without accuracy buffs.
