Product Description

    Adapted from Hobby Boss: Since the world's Air Forces strategized for night bombing, bombing became more effective than ever. To combat against the night bombing, a series of night fighters were put into use. The Americans started their night fighter program on 1940. The Army used the P-70 Havoc and Beaufighter to fight with the Japanese until the first 45 P-61 Black Widow were in active service in October of 1943.

    But both the P-61A and P-61B were felt to be deficient in both top speed and in overall operational service. To improve the performance two new more powerful Pratt and Whitney R-2800C engines were applied. With this increase in power the top speed and altitude were increased to 430 mph and 30,000 feet.

    Another changes on the P-61C was the wide chord propellers and special "fighter brakes" which allow the P-61C to turn much tighter and avoid overshooting targets.
