P38J Droop Snoot

Recommended Posts

I’m surprised no one has brought it up before. I know you can use an A-20 as the formation leader but it is so much slower in speed and climb rate than the 38s. Imagine a flight of 38s with one of these leading the drop and escorts. After the drop they can fight their way back home or strafe targets of opportunity.  This would give the Axis a reason to come up high and give us the high altitude fights a lot of us want! Another perfect reason for the P-38 to be a collectors plane!

It's been brought up plenty of times before. :)

Yep the one and only difference is the nose. That's a piece of cake. The guys should be able to knock it out in a couple of hours and make it a modification of the one we already have so we don't have to pay for another plane.

I bet those that solely fly bombers would be thankful. Might not feel so left out of Bodenplatte anymore. It gives them a fast late war plane to use for what they enjoy.
