Of all the fighter planes that flew during World War II, the P-39 Airacobra was unique in having its engine placed behind the pilot. This marvelous design allowed for greater maneuverability. The P-39 was the first single-engine fighter plane to have tricycle landing gear and was equipped with more powerful armament than any other single-engine fighter of that time! The P-39 Airacobra was designed in 1937, and first flew on April 6, 1939. Nearly 9,588 P-39 series were built, and flown by the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force squadrons in the Pacific, Alaska, Europe, Africa, and South America. The British, Free French, and Italian Air Forces also operated P-39’s. As a dedicated ground-attack fighter with a fearsome T9 nose cannon, mid-engine and tricycle landing gear, the P-39 was truly unique in design.Product Information:
