The name given to the United States' P-38 fighter aircraft, which saw service in all theaters of WWII. The aircraft was a twin-boom, twin-engine design that gave superior climb rate and speed. Standard armament was four .50 caliber machine guns, and one 20mm cannon, all mounted in the nose ahead of the cockpit. Additionally, bombs, rockets, and fuel tanks could be carried on pylons under the wings.
