    Re: Bell P-39 Airacobra & P-63 Kingcobra.

    Different philosophies I guess H.G., Americans tend to like roomy, fully loaded transport perhaps..
    There is an interesting P-39 thread going on the Aircraft of WW2 forum, by the way..

    H.G. claimed in post #90 that the P-39 was "the best fighter of WW2 [in 1943]."

    & in post #105 that "Nothing out performed the P-39N or P-39Q under 20,000ft. Nothing"
