    If your talking in difference to the D-20, the D-20 hada bubble canopy with no razorback, the MkIII has a Malcom hood (slightly bulged)with razor back.

    Not sure what you're talking about. In-game, all P-51B Mustangs have the razorback/framed canopy. The P-51C Mustangs have razorback/Malcom hood canopy (similar to that on the Spitfire), and all P-51D types have the bubble canopy fitted to the later designs.

    The Mustang Mark III is essentially identical to the P-51C.

    After arrival in Britain the B and C models for RAF service received the Malcolm hood. Simply because it gave a better view for the pilot.
    Until the teardrop canopy arrived ofcourse...
