The P-51B/C Mustang (ICAO: P51 / WAKE: LIGHT) is a long-range, single-seat vintage fighter and fighter-bomber. Created in Second Life by Tumansky Heavy Industries, Jester Avionics and Laminar Systems, the plane was based on the iconic real-life North American P-51B/C Mustang, an earlier variant of the North American P-51D Mustang , which is an American fighter aircraft used during World War II.
Produced by Tumansky Heavy Industries for Second Life, the aircraft is closely referenced to both P-51 B and C Models of Mustangs, in order to bring a realistic experience to Second Life's Aviation and Combat communities.
The P-51B/C takes advantage of Laminar Systems' LFE (Laminar Flight Engine), which references a real P-51 Mustang's flight physics model to a 1:6 measurement scale. The P-51B/C is also one of the few Aircraft released in the age of Mesh, to be only consistent of sculpted and regular prims. This gives the aircraft a lower Land Impact of 32 prims, and allows it to sculpt map swap the Canopy prim via a script for it to change between B and C models. A separate P-51 C "Excalibur III" model is unarmed and is mainly used as an Air Racer.
