The P-80 was designed in 1943 during WWII, and a few pre-production models did see limited service in Italy. It was the first successful American jet fighter and helped to bring about the jet age. It was one of the best fighters in the Korean war, (it also scored the first air-to-air jet combat kill- against a MiG-15) although it was replaced soon after in the air-superiority role by the F-86 Sabre. It was then used for other jobs, such as reconnaissance and other support roles.
