The Airacobra was one of the principal American fighter aircraft in service at the start of World War II. It could absorb a lot of enemy gunfire and still return its pilot back to base. The P-39 was also used by the Russians because it had a big 37-millimeter canon in the nose which could be used on low-level runs against tanks. It was very successful on the Eastern Front where the Soviets engaged the Germans primarily in low-altitude short range, strategic bombing. A single hit from the Airacobra�s cannon was usually enough to disable or destroy a German fighter plane. P-39s piloted by the Soviet Air Force scored the highest number of individual kills attributed to any U.S. fighter type.
