The Lockheed P-38 Lightning was one of the most important American fighters of the Second World War. Although its operational record was somewhat mixed, in general the P-38 was a fast, powerful and capable aircraft that performed well in a wide range of roles.
The aircraft had twin booms with the engines mounted forward, and a single, central nacelle containing the pilot and armament. The engine sounds were a unique, rather quiet "whuffle," because the exhausts were muffled by the turbochargers of the twin Allison V12s. The canopy could not be opened without severe buffeting, so pilots were often too hot in the tropics. In northern Europe, the distance of the engines from the cockpit prevented effective heating of the cockpit. Thus it was always either too hot or too cold. However, late variants of the P-38 received modifications that removed this problem, giving the pilot full control of the powerful vehicle.
Lockheed designed the P-38 in response to a 1937 United States Army Air Corps (USAAC) request for a high-altitude interceptor, capable of 360 mph at altitude of 20,000 ft, (580 km/h at 6100 m). The Bell P-39 Airacobra and the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk were designed to meet the same request.
At that time, US piston engines could not push fighter performance to ideal limits so the Lockheed design team, under the direction of Clarence "Kelly" Johnson decided to use two turbo-supercharged 12 cylinder Allison V-1710 engines which had not been rated at even 1000 hp (746 kW)
