During WWII, I lived 1 mile from NAA where P-51 Mustangs & B-25 Mitchells were built & tested.

That would be an A-36 Apache, the 'Dive bomber' variant of the first Mustangs. The main difference was the main-plane (Wings), To incorporate the dive breaks that were in the center of the main-plane a complete re-design was necessary.
North American Aviation took this as a chance to 'Beef up' the main-plane to include two bomb racks and four .50in (50Cal)M2 Browning Machine Guns. It also had to incorporate the pre-mentioned and quite unique hydraulically operated cast Aluminium dive brakes.
Although known as a 'Dive Bomber' the aircraft was in fact envisioned as a low level Attack Aircraft. This resulted in top power and performance being produced below 12,000ft with the use of the 'Sea level rated' Allison V-1710-87 with 1,352hp (988 kW) at 3,000 ft.
Although the aircraft now is considered a poor performing version of the Mustang it acquired a reputation of sturdiness and precision in bombing. The Germans being on the receiving end of the aircraft dubbed it the "screaming helldivers".

Enthusiast Mark Taylor of VintageCaravans.com posted these keen old shots on the site,
dedicated to pre-1970 units. On the theme, "Australia's Touring Heritage," many more keen
photos and commentary on "caravans" can be found there!
