well if the internet board say this.. then it must be so...:

https://ww2aircraft.net/forum/threads/p-38-lightning-vs-p-51-mustang-which-was-the-better-fighter.3867/#:~:text=P51%27s%20were%20use%20din%20the%20PTO%20and%20CBI%2C,the%20fighter%20bomber%20role%2C%20the%20P38%20was%20superior.

Quote
P51's were use din the PTO and CBI, although not until late in 1944. P51's were also used to escort B29's after Iwo Jima was taken.

I would say the P51 was better simply because it was easier to build and maintain.

For the fighter bomber role, the P38 was superior.

personally, the P-51 is supreme.

Do you see modified P-38s at reno these days... no,... Mustangs... yes...


And the cost to produce...

how about what plane was still fighting in Korea?

You are correct Woody, the P51 was not in the fight in the earlier part of the war thus its statistics could not be countered against much of the P38's actions. The thread below explains a lot of the
P38 and P51 involvement. The P51 finally became the go to fighter. The P38 still had its place up to the end of WWII. In Box, I have no doubt that Both the P51 and P38 can compliment each
other in the right conditions. I just wanted to rattle your cage a little as I know your a passionate Mustang Driver. :)

In some ways this can be good or it can be scary. Think of the black ops possibilities.

developed for God knows what.
