P-38 Lightning Light Rockets 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.
M8 was a rocket developed by National Defense Research Committee and the Army Ordnance Department. With prototypes created by Colonel Leslie Skinner out of old fire extinguisher tanks for rocket casings. These were mounted on fighters with M10 triple-tube launcher.
