That's ok, no one here is a living WW2 library except maybe for aunschullac
Why isn't LA-7 a choice? That plane is ta Sex. I think swordfish should be there as well.
I didn't make it!
The choices are from the original BF1942, besides there would be too many fighters put up in the first place if I didn't set a limit. Hey, the Swordfish is a torpedo bomber; would we consider it a fighter?
Anlushac11;4204433Mustang was used in the PTO and CBI theatre. Most Mustangs in PTO were P-51's and P-51A's used in New Guineau and CBI. The P-51 had priority for ETO for the desperate need for a long range escort to be able to fly to Berlin and back and still have fuel and ammo for fighting.
Watching a show of "Dogfights" they used P-51Ds out of Iwo Jima to escort B-29s bombing Japan as well as for some strafing runs on airfields in the later stages of the war. In game I can't really say except maybe choosing the P51 there since flying was not often available in gameplay. IRL it would be the P-51D hands down. Second choice would be the Corsair.
