The North American A-36 Apache was the ground-attack/dive bomber version of the North American P-51 Mustang, from which it could be distinguished by the presence of rectangular, slatted dive brakes above and below the wings. The most important change was in fact its engine : not the Rolls Royce Merlin of the P-51 B and later variants but the Allison V-1710 with a cool air intake over it. This gave a different line to the nose as the engine was flanked by two 0.50 machine gun. A total of 500 A-36 dive bombers served in North Africa, the Mediterranean, Italy and the China-Burma-India theater during World War II before being withdrawn from operational use in 1944.
