Could be a replica? Also compare exhaust outlets with WWII versions - perhaps it has a Merlin?

Did some research and found this out

It is a D-3801 (MS-406 Swiss)

The Swiss received the uncompleted 412 and finished it, modifying it like their 3800s with their own instruments, propeller and weapons. This was put into production in 1941 as the D-3801 with continued deliveries until 1945 when 207 were completed. Another 17 were built from spares between 1947 and 1948 and remained in service as a trainer and target tug until 1959.

Sigh, this makes me long for some BOF stuff in Il-2: Blochs, Dewoitines... at least a pit for the Moranes and the Hawks we have in game...

Yes - My earlier comment about it perhaps having a Merlin is clearly wrong (and looking at it again I don't think one would fit anyway).

For those that believe that it sounds like a tractor keep in mind that most of the video you cannot actually hear it because those mustangs are idling near the camera man.
