The Lockheed P38 was a twin-engine heavy fighter of the United States that fought during the Second World War demonstrating, in spite of its size and its totally different and characteristic shape consisting of a central barge, where the crews and armament were housed, and flanking it a duplicate fuselage where the engines were housed. The P38’s agility, speed, maneuverability, range and armament made it a very prestigious aircraft among USAAF crews and feared by its adversaries, its main role being that of long-range support missions, but in the end it also acted as a bomber, fighter-bomber and reconnaissance aircraft.
The P38F version was ready from April 1942 and incorporated supports that allowed it to increase the number of bombs up to 900Kg. The P38G version used 1400hp Alison engines, both versions were armed with four 12.7mm machine guns and a 20mm Hispano-Suiza cannon.
The F version was produced in 527 units and the G version in 1,082 units.
