I wonder if they will make the P-51B/C a '43 or '44 plane. It was used late in 1943 so who knows. I would think the Mustang would be pretty dominant in 1943 except for very low firpower.

Nice pic! I love the P-51C, probably because they were made in my home state. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

To answer a part of my own question, the Malcolm hood Mustang B/C is definitely a '44 plane, February to be exact. I think the first missions by P-51B/C Mustangs were in December 1943, that's pretty late in '43 so again, who knows.
