History:
Initially called the Bell P-39 Caribou, its name was changed to Airacobra [1] during its development. In general, aircraft of the time had their design based on the engine.

The Airacobra had its drawing totally created based on the primary weapon, a 37mm barrel that was left in the nose.

The Bell put the barrel there to increase the accuracy of the shots and to prevent the strong recoil of the weapon from the pilot losing his aim. The engine, then, was placed immediately behind the cockpit [2] and was connected to the propeller shaft by a cardan transmission that passed immediately below the pilot's feet.

The unique position of the engine radically altered the center of gravity of the aircraft, forcing the Bell to make the weight set in configuration with tricycle landing gear (until then, all fighters in the world had landing gears in normal configuration or conventional), being that the Airacobra was the first fighter in the world with this configuration.

The cockpit cover also had a differentiated pattern, focused on maximum visibility from the outside. For that, instead of placing a door at the top, a side door was placed to the left of the cabin.

    It really needs airbrakes in its flaps too.

    Manoeuvrability is good, but the pitch feels like it’s on rails and it’s extremely floaty. It’s almost impossible to land.
    This is because your wing loading is far too low. What I recommend doing is shaping your wings so they match the size and shape of the actual wings of the plane. Not only does this make the plane fly more naturally, but it also naturally comes close to the real life performance of the aircraft.
    The wing physics in SP are way better than people give credit for.

    hey the HP seems really really low its supposed to be 1200 hp. make the engine hp right first then adjust drag points.
