P-38 Lightning Heavy Bomber is a United States Air unit.
A Lockheed design created in response to a 1937 specification by the Army Air Corps, the P-38 Lightning was an unique design from its inception. Using twin booms for the tail assembly, engines, and superchargers and a single central nacelle for the pilot and armament, the P-38 avoided the usual problem of wing-mounted guns by clustering them in one place and firing straight ahead, greatly increasing weapon range. Additionally, it offered excellent speed and performance, particularly in later, more mature versions.
The P-38 was introduced in July 1941, and went to fight on all fronts of the war, from Pearl Harbor to the end of the Pacific War, with over 10,000 fighters produced in numerous configurations. It has the distinction of being the only American fighter aircraft in high-volume production throughout World War II.
3rd Armored has one card in Phase B and two cards of two P-38s and another two cards of a singular two veteran P-38.
2nd Infantry has three cards of two P-38 in Phase C.
1st Infantry has two cards of a single one star veteran in Phase C.
