P-38 Lightning (new) . . The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was a World War II American fighter aircraft built by Lockheed. Developed to a United States Army Air Corps requirement, the P-38 had distinctive twin booms and a single, central nacelle containing the cockpit and armament. Named "fork-tailed devil" by the Luftwaffe and "two planes, one pilot" by the Japanese, the P-38 was used in a number of roles, including dive bombing, level bombing, ground- attack, photo reconnaissance missions,[5] and extensively as a long-range escort fighter when equipped with drop tanks under its wings. The P-38 was used most successfully in the Pacific Theater of Operations and the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations as the mount of America's top aces, Richard Bong (40 victories) and Thomas McGuire (38 victories). In the South West Pacific theater, the P-38 was the primary long-range fighter of United States Army Air Forces until the appearance of large numbers of P-51D Mustangs toward the end of the war.[6][7] The P-38 was unusually quiet for a fighter, the exhaust muffled by the turbo-superchargers. It was extremely forgiving, and could be mishandled in many ways, but the rate of roll in the early versions was too slow for it to excel as a dogfighter.[8] The P-38 was the only American fighter aircraft in production throughout American involvement in the war, from Pearl Harbor to Victory over Japan Day General characteristics Crew: One Length: 37 ft 10 in (11.53 m) (11.53 m) Wingspan: 52 ft 0 in (15.85 m) (15.85 m) Height: 12 ft 10 in (3.91 m) (3.91 m) Wing area: 327.5 ft (30.43 m) Airfoil: NACA 23016 / NACA 4412 Empty weight: 12,800 lb[103] (5,800 kg) Loaded weight: 17,500 lb[103] (7,940 kg) Max. takeoff weight: 21,600 lb (9,798 kg) Powerplant: 2 Allison V-1710-111/113 V-12 piston engine, 1,725 hp [N 7] (1,194 kW) each Zero-lift drag coefficient: 0.0268[103] Drag area: 8.78 ft (0.82 m)[103] Aspect ratio: 8.26[ The pilot is supposed to look like me, which he does =) As you can see I have taken A lot of time into this moc, Actually this is the most time i have ever taken into a moc As you can see the props work.
