Nick - the 4x50 cal wing armament was common to the A-36, P-51A and P-51B/C.

The A-36 was the last Mustang with cowl mounted 50 caliber and only one with Dive Brakes except for the Mustang I test vehicle with both dive brakes and wing bomb/fuel rack installation.

AAF MC posted a memo in 1944 that mandated all NAA fighters including A-36, P-51-1-NA; P-51A, P-51B/C; P-51D/K were Mustangs.

John Voll: P-51B 9-2-0; 12-2-2 in P-51D

Good afternoon drondog,

thanks.
That breakdown renders George Preddy the top P-51D ace (18 victories) and Glenn Eagleston the top P-51B ace (18,5 victories), right ?

Have a nice Tuesday,

Michael
