Aircraft Roster
ETO

The European Theater of Operations, USAAF, in WW2 was comprised mostly of the 8th Air Force, and later the 9th Air Force joined in a tactical role in preparation for the invasion of Normandy.

The 9th Air Force was originally created as V Air Support Command on August 21, 1941 and activated on September 1, 1941. It was re-designated as the 9th AF in April 1942. The 9th AF participated in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Sicily, and Italy. The 9th transferred to England in October, 1943 and participated in the Normandy invasion and supported efforts on the European continent until the end of the war.

The 8th Air Force operated in the European Theatre of Operations (ETO), Headquartered in High Wycombe, United Kingdom. The 8th Air Force was activated in Savannah, Georgia on January 28, 1942 at the Chatham Armory with General Ira C. Eaker commanding. The first combat operation by members of the 8th Air Force Bomber Command occurred on July 4, 1942. Comprised mostly of bomber groups, the 8th Air Force did field more than 20 fighter groups in the ETO during World War Two.

Man-O-War, RAF Green & Black>

20.99Mb (Downloads: 13)

This repaint depicts a modern version of P-51D-10-NA, 44-14292, "Man-O-War", flown by Lt. Col. Claiborne H. Kinnard while with the 334th Fighter Squadrom, 4th FG. Kinnard spent his final year of WW2 in command positions with both the 355th & 4th Fighter Groups as one of the Air Force's top leaders and tacticians.

This version is a copy of the Elmer Ward family's #N44727 P-51 with black anti-glare panel, "RAF Green" stripes, and red rudder. For historical accuracy the squadron call-letters are angular military-style as shown in original wartime photos.

Note: There is some discrepency found in researching this aircraft, so I created two paint schemes. This download is "texture.manowar".

Petie 2nd, World War II era - (Bad Petie)

13.78Mb (Downloads: 12)

Bad Petie is the one exception in this collection of modern textures. This repaint depicts the wartime version of "Petie-2nd" flown by Lt. Colonel John C. Meyer, commanding officer of the 487th Fighter Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group known as "The Blue-Nosed Bastards of Bodney" [England] after the 352nd FG moved to mainland Europe and the black D-Day stripes have been removed from the top of the wings to reduce visibility from the air. Bad Petie is a dirty warhorse seeing heavy combat over Europe, well maintained but used and abused as an implement of war.

Grim Reaper

9.81Mb (Downloads: 13)

This repaint depicts a modern version of P-51D-20-NA, 44-63702, #N26PW, GQ-U "Grim Reaper", flown by Captain Lowell K. Brueland of the 355th Fighter Squadron, 354th Fighter Group, 9th Air Force. The currently flying 44-63702, #N26PW, was actually deployed to the Swedish Air Force in April, 1945. The same airframe flying today was deployed to the ETO during WW2 with North American serial number 44-63701. While this particular aircraft did not see combat during the war, these details do make it a very unique "near-combat" WW2 veteran.

MTO

The Mediterranean Theater of Operations, USAAF, in WW2 was comprised of the 9th, 12th, and 15th Air Forces.

The 9th Air Force was originally created as V Air Support Command on August 21, 1941 and activated on September 1, 1941. It was re-designated as the 9th AF in April 1942. The 9th AF participated in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Sicily, and Italy. The 9th transferred to England in October, 1943 and participated in the Normandy invasion and supported efforts on the European continent until the end of the war.

The 12th Air Force was created and activated as Twelfth AF on August 20, 1942. It participated in the invasion of Algeria and French Morocco in November, 1942, and operated in the Mediterranean theater until the end of the war.

The 15th Air Force operated in the Mediterranean Theatre of Operations (MTO), with Headquarters in Tunis, Tunisia beginning November 1, 1943 with Maj Gen James H Doolittle commanding; and quickly moving to Bari, Italy on December 1, 1943. It was created as the Fifteenth AF on 30 October, 1943, and activated in the Mediterranean theater on 1 Nov 1943. It began operations on 2 November and engaged primarily in strategic bombardment of targets in Italy, France, Germany, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Hungary, and the Balkans until the end of the war. It was inactivated in Italy on 15 September 1945, and activated in the US on 31 March 1946.

"By Request"

13.78Mb (Downloads: 12)

This repaint depicts a modern P-51D-30-NA Mustang, painted in the colors of #66 "By Request", originally flown by Col. Benjamin O Davis, Commanding Officer of the 332d Fighter Group, 15th Air Force, known as "The Tuskegee Airmen". This is a fictional rendition of a modern Mustang as might be seen at any airshow with a U.S. civilian aircraft "Limited" registry, NL542D. The serial number for #66 "By Request" P-51D could not be located, so this repaint's serial of 44-15542 is historically inaccurate for the original aircraft. This is a late-model D-30 block Mustang with additional air intakes above the radiator intake, and late-model wheels. Also equipped with a beautiful polished propeller.

This is a ficticious rendition of a modern Mustang as might be seen at any airshow with a U.S. civilian aircraft "Limited" registry, NL648E.

Pacific Theater of Operations

The Pacific Theater of Operations, USAAF, WW2, incorporated more Air Forces than any other theater - including the 5th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th, and 20th Air Forces.

The 5th Air Force was created as the Philippine Department AF on August 16, 1941 and activated in the Philippines on September 20, 1941. It was re-designated Far East AF in October of 1941, and became the 5th AF in February 1942. The 5th AF participated in the defense of the Philippines after Pearl Harbor. Netherlands Indies. The 5th AF participated in operations in Papua, New Guinea, Netherlands East Indies, and the liberation of the Philippines.

The 7th Air Force was first created as the Hawaiian Air Force on October 19, 1940 and activated on November 1, 1940. It was re-designated 7th AF in February 1942. The 7th Air Force initially provided air defense for the Hawaiian Islands. During 1943, the 7th AF served in combat in the central and western Pacific.

The 10th AF operated in in India, Burma, and China. It was created as 10th Air Force on February 4, 1942 and activated on Febrary 12, 1942.

The 11th Air Force was originally created as Alaskan Air Force on December 28, 1941 and activated January 15, 1942. It was re-designated the 11th AF in February 1942. The 11th AF participated in operations in the Aleutians and was involved with the defense of Alaska.

This repaint depicts P-51D-30-NA Mustang (Reg #N2505U), painted in the colors of "The Flying Undertaker", 44-72505, flown by Major William Shomo, Commanding Officer of the 82nd TRS (Tactical Recon Sqdn), 71st TRG, Binmaley, Pangasinan, Philippines, February-April, 1945. On April 3, 1945 Shomo was presented with the Medal of Honor for leading his wingman, Lt. Paul Lipscomb, against 12 enemy fighters and 1 bomber, shooting down 7 enemy aircraft himself - the single day record for an American pilot. Yes, this is the original A2A Simulations' paint scheme for "Snooks", recreated as a modern restored warbird.

Foreign & Post-War Repaints

Following VJ Day the US AAF underwent a major demobilization and reorganization. Personnel were discharged, facilities closed, and equipment sold or scrapped. Under the new command of General Carl A. Spaatz, the majority of the United States' air power came in the form of Reserve Unit forces and National Guard units deployed in each of the 50 States and Territories. The war had changed the Worldwide situation forever and more emphasis was placed on retaining a well-trained National Guard force as the core of future reaction forces.

In the Middle East, the first post-war military conflict erupted and opposing forces scrambled together air forces composed of WW2 aircraft from numerous Countries. The Israeli War of Independence lasted from November 1947 to July 1949. On 15 May 1949, Israel's "Haganah" (their prexisting paramilitary defense force) was renamed the "Israeli Defense Force" and officially came into being two weeks later. The Israeli Air Force (IAF) came into being on 28 May 1948 as the aerial arm of the Haganah, and later the IDF. The IAF has proven itself as one of the most formidable air forces in the world, operating less than 50 miles from hostile territory during its entire history.

This repaint depicts a modern P-51D-20-NA Mustang, painted in the colors of the Israeli Air Force, 101 Squadron, serial #39, which entered service after the 1948 Israeli War of Independence and served through the late 1950s. Only two Mustangs served during the 1948 War of Independence, Israeli Defense Force, flying alongside British Spitfires, Mosquitoes, and Czech-built Avia S-199s (re-engined Bf-109). More Mustangs entered service with the IAF after being smuggled from the US, and #39 of 101 Squadron was one of these. This interesting period in history signified the chaos following WW2.

'Stang Evil

13.78Mb (Downloads: 12)

This repaint depicts P-51D-30-NT (NT block was built in Dallas, TX), 45-11636, "'Stang Evil", N11636, owned by Michael W. Bertz of Lakewood, CO, and painted in the colors of 335th Fighter Squadron, 4th Fighter Group, 8th AF, with call-letters of the Colorado National Guard in which it once served. This Mustang was one of the last 200 D-Models ever produced.

NOTE: As I say with all of my WoP2 P-51 repaints, I use photo-real textures from an actual P-51D. THIS is the Mustang I took photos of and used in my paint kit. Also, the slit-vents on the side of the radiator are unique to Block-30 Mustangs and photo-real.

This repaint depicts P-51D-30-NA, 44-74466, "Barbara Jean", FAA #N10607, owned by Harry Barr of Lincoln, NE, painted in the colors of the Nebraska National Guard. This Mustang was heavily damaged in 2005. Prior to this accident it had a polished propeller, polished aluminum skins, and slightly different artwork. Currently "Barbara Jean" is painted in overall silver paint with black propeller. This repaint retains the current artwork, but has the polished exterior and propeller of days past. An optional file is included to give it a black propeller.

Reno Unlimited Repaints

This "Reno Unlimited" category consists of my custom modern designs. These paint schemes are geared toward the Reno Racing Unlimited Class, Silver Races. The Silver Races fall under the Unlimited Class, but are not a separate class. The Silver Races are a slower category for aircraft that don't qualify for the Gold Races, but continue to compete throughout the week, as with all racing classes at Reno.

NOTE: For an explanation of Reno Unlimited Classes study "APPENDIX A-1 - UNLIMITED CLASS PROGRESSION, Page 32" found HERE.

The 3D model of the A2A Simulations "Wings of Power II" P-51 Mustang has a stock production airframe and is not customized for Reno Air Racing. The gun muzzle fairings, wing pylons, antenna, cockpit, and general airframe shape cannot be modified by mere textures. However, the "WoP 2" Mustang falls well within the realm of somewhat stock aircraft that consistently qualify for the Reno Unlimited Silver races.

Dazzling Dee

N/A (Downloads: 0)

This mostly original creation is my Razzle Dazzle Model-D Mustang - "Dazzling Dee". This scheme depicts a modern P-51D-30-NA Mustang rebuilt and prepared for the Reno air racing circuit, Silver Races. This paint scheme is based on actual experimentaion with a "disruptive" pattern applied to a P-51A to disorient the enemy in reading one end of the craft from the other. One of my first thoughts when seeing this historical "Razzle Dazzle" paint scheme was how impressive it would look as an air racer at Reno with the right artistic addaptation.

Accessories

Below you will find miscellaneous add-ons for the Double-Whopper 51. Drop tanks were rarely ever camouflaged during wartime, but the modern airshow circuit would allow such a luxury, and you will find many options below for your specific bird. All aircraft repaints have the appropriate files included, but if you wish to download these files individually then this is the place. All drop tank and pylon texture files are non-distortion "DXT888-8 32 bit" files. At 1 megabyte these files are four times larger than the stock DXT5 compressed files, but still small and with no distortion.

The Modern Cockpit and Pilot Packs will enable you to modernize the P-51 to your individual preferrence. The cockpit files are also "DXT888-8 32 bit" files with zero distortion, which is important for zooming in close to items in the Virtual Cockpit.
