The P-51D became the true ruler of the skies wherever it appeared, serving as an escort & patrol fighter, & also in ground attack & reconnaissance roles. The Mustang would see service in the Pacific taking the war to the Japanese, even conducting very long range strikes on Tokyo as well as extensive use in the European theater.
The RAF had to wait for the Mustang Mk.IV until late 1944, as the USAAF Fighter Groups had priority of deliveries. All the aircraft supplied to the British were built in the Dallas factory & either painted in US coloured camouflage or left in natural metal/silver paint finish. Some aircraft were later repainted in British camouflage scheme.
