    The P-51B (Inglewood, Cal. Manf.) and the P-51C (Dallas, Tx. Manf.) were a major progression to the original Allison powered P-51A Mustang. The British designation for the B/C was Mustang III. While the P-51A was a fine low altitude fighter, it suffered from the lack of a two speed, two stage supercharger for its Allison engine. Most aerial combat in Europe took place above 15,000 feet, right where the P-51A was running out of steam. The Allison was early into its development, and wouldnt display its full power until the P82 twin Mustang, to late for the war. The P51B/C would mate the Spitfires well developed Merlin Engine (Racing since 1935) , licensed for manufacture in the U.S. by Packard, to its sleek airframe. A four bladed propeller and the new supercharger turned the P-51 into one of , if not the best fighter of WWII. The P-51B/C was actually faster than the P-51D due to later combat weight increases. 3,738 Bs and Cs were built by North American Aviation (Later Rockwell International and today Boeing) ,and 20 P-51Cs were modified into F-6C photo reconnaissance aircraft.
