    P-39 Airacobra

    The P-39 Airacobra is one of the most interesting and innovative fighters of World War II - Bell designers equipped it with a front wheel, an engine in the centre of gravity of the airframe and a solid 37 mm cannon. The engine was originally equipped with a turbo-supercharger, which provided the prototype flown in the spring of 1939 with excellent performance at high altitudes. However, US aviation officials preferred less-complex propulsion, fit to operate at a lower altitude. The implementation of Airacobra into mass production and combat units coincided with the rapidly changing circumstances related to the outbreak of war in Europe, and then on the Eastern and Pacific fronts. The first orders for France and Great Britain were not fully delivered, some of them were transferred directly to the US forces fighting in the Pacific and North Africa. With the advent of more effective aircraft types, more than half of the 9,558 produced Cobras were sent under Lend-Lease to the Soviet Union, where the aircraft performed excellently: battles were fought at the low altitude for which the Airacobra was best suited. Of the top 10 Soviet aces, half flew Airacobras.

    The most widely produced, in almost 5 thousand copies, and at the same time, the ultimate version of the Airacobra was the P-39Q. The plane was powered by a 1,200 hp Allison engine and differed from the previous versions by armament reinforced with two 0.50-inch machine guns in the underwing fairings. Most of the aeroplanes of this version went to the USSR, where they were used by, among others, the most outstanding pilots of the elite guard units. They were also used in combat by the US and Italy Co-Belligerent Air Forces, mainly performing ground-assault tasks. The "Q" Cobras were also widely used in the US for training, and many future aces got their wings on them before going to the front. In the post-war period, one P-39Q Airacobra was the personal hack of the Soviet general Fyodor Polynin, commanding the Polish "people's" aviation.
