War Thunder background
The Mustang Family

The story of the Mustang family started in 1940. That’s when the British Purchasing Commission approached North American Aviation to build Curtiss P-40 fighters under license. But North American Aviation came with a counter proposal: to develop a completely new aircraft for the RAF… within four months.

The plan wasn’t without risks, but the Commission decided to take it… and won big time. The British had a habit of giving aircraft proper names; this one is now known as the Mustang.
