I know that I will be "migrating" to it immediately and staying there, with brief flirts with the other new aircraft.

To those who say it is ugly, "you is wrong," especially when we get a load more skins for it. The P-51D/K looks like controlled aggression in aluminum. It is a graceful plane aerodynamically, and not all that larger than a Bf-109.

I just hope the 'stang is not dogged by the awful bullet dispersion problem of the P-47 (hopefully the gun modelling will be P-40-ish) or otherwise porked. I also think it won't be as uber as some people may want it to be, primarily because high-alt flight in FB is not all that realistic, but it should be among the best BnZ craft in the game at almost every altitude and not too bad at turn fighting in the right hands.

I can hardly wait.

Online, I will destroy it in my I-153.

I will enjoy flying it in offline missions.

LOL! I have never ever been hit by a I-53 let alone killed by one. I-53 is easy to own as it is in the P-47. Should be even easier in the Stang/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

You think we need more skins? There are 418 P-51 skins here.

Will fly it online all the time to get the max out of it. I think the guns will be like in the P40 and if set with two buttons(cannon/guns) you can make them even more deadly.

I'll certainly try it out first thing.

btw, is there no way to set all your guns to just one button? In the P-47 for instance, I really hate having to press down both buttons at once to fire all 8 guns.

Your Post Could Not Be Completed Because:

Board is busy currently unable to post.

Please make any needed corrections and try again.

nice thing about two seperate buttons is you can have two seperate convergance settings.. I think that is what he was getting at with regards to more deadly?

My wise daddy once said..."Never settle for anything...but temper your enthusiasm as it can make the wait and disappointment unbearable"

I welcome the Mustang, but cast a jaundice eye towards it until I fly it.

I want the Apache, dive bomb first taking out targets with pinpoint accuracy, than go hunting for trouble.

Yeah, I have been through them. Many are variations of the same paint jobs by different skinners. Another good fraction are non-historic, including, for example, modern air racers and Tom Cruise's Miss Montana.

Because it is only flyable AI now, 418 skins is nothing like the output for the more popular full flyables like the 190 and 109.
