About the F-51D Mustang "Korean War":
The F-51D Mustangs were instrumental in halting the North Korean advance in the Korean War (1950-1953). Though obsolete as fighters, F-51Ds did air support and reconnaissance missions.
Although their primary mission was close support, Mustangs managed to shoot down a few North Korean Yaks when these aircraft made their infrequent appearances. When the Mustangs were used for ground attack, their performance was less of a concern than their ability to carry a load. A substantial number were fitted with rockets and bombs.
• six .50 caliber machine guns, three in each wing, with 400 rounds for each inboard caliber machine guns, three in each wing, with 400 rounds for each inboard gun and 270 rounds for the other four, plus underwing pylons for auxiliary fuel tanks of 1000 lb bombs
