If you read the german veterans especially Galland, the picture of Luftwaffes defeat is drawn by P-51. Only due the range and perfomance of P-51 the Luftwaffe get no break to revcover the suffered losses.

Just take a look on claims, losses and bombs dropped.

It can be seen, that P-51 had a much greater impact on air superiority.
Come on, these figures are not for real, more American propaganda.

Just look at the stat’s for the enemy aircraft claimed over Europe by the gunners of the B17, a staggering 6,659 and the B24 a further 2,617. Overall the gunners of the US bomber forces in Europe claimed a staggering 9,889 enemy fighters from 1942-1944. !!!!!!

You don’t need the P51 or P47, unbelievable.
