it was an american fighter plane developed and built by lockheed. It was the best fighter plane at the end of WW2. because of its longer range escort allied bombers from england to its targets in germany. look up tuskegee airmen. as for battles it fought for it was primarily used for high alititude bombers escort. But it was also used to take control over the skies of europe. The plane was used by most allied forces due to the lend lease program. It had six .50 calibur machineguns of capable of carring up to 1, 1000 pound bomb. was also the first plane to use extened fuel tanks. The P-51 was the most advanced fighters of its time. It was often refered as the cadilac of the sky. It didnt fight in one specific battle it fought in mainly the european theatere but was also used against the japanese in the pacific. The P-51 earned the title of tank buster from u.s ground forces because of its ability to blow up enemy tanks. the plane was also called w.e.p war emergency power where it poured a rich oil/fuel mixture into the engine making the plane run more effecintally at higer alitudes it also made it go faster.
