BTW the P51A would be a great addition to the sim.

A pity we will never see it.

Copied by Israel - only without the sissy rig. They used their props and wings like real men. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Operation Steamroller: Dropping Paratroopers
Near the Mitla Pass (October 29, 1956)

Two daring missions opened the 1956 Sinai Campaign. In the first, four World War II vintage Mustangs disrupted Egyptian communications in the Sinai by severing telephone wires with specially mounted cutting cables. After the cables broke off, the pilots continued to cut the wires with their wings and propellers!

From here (and many other sources of course).

The P-51 won the war. They would have massacred those tiny (Asian Aggressor Force) tanks but they could not find many paved roads on which to skip their .50 cal rounds.
