Daylight, unescorted bombing raids into Germany by American bombers were successful, but the rising hundreds of casualties prompted the development of a fighter that could match the B-17's range, but still proved capable in combat despite the fuel weight. NAA's design abandoned manoeuvrability and switched to a sluggish, cheap and fast fighter that would defeat German fighters by outnumbering them.

    @F4f879 it's the C version. Meaning it doesn't even have the Merlin in it so expect it to be ass.

    @F4f879 Take out the wing fuel tanks, reduce the internal fuel to 100 gal and add a little weight on the nose and it would become just as good a turner as the 109.
