The only difference between the North American P-51B and C variants was the B was built in Inglewood and the C in Dallas. The B variant first flew on May 5, 1943 and the C variant first flew on August 5, 1943. The B variant saw 1,988 built while the C variant saw 1,750 built. On bomber escort to Berlin. The high shape of the P-51B/C dorsal spine gave it the name bomber escort to Berlin. The high shape of the P-51B/C dorsal spine gave it the name “Razorback”.

On June 6, 1944 near Leipzig, Germany while the 363rd FS/357th FG P-51B Mustangs were escorting B-17s on a bombing mission eight German Fw-190s came up to engage the bombers. The P-51s reacted and went after the Fw-190s with Capt. C.E. Bud Anderson unleashing a long-range volley eliminating the leader who bailed out. This time Anderson moved in closer on the second Fw-190 and set him ablaze. The third Fw-190 of the day for Bud came when the German failed to see him and flew directly in front of the P-51 with a predictable outcome. At the end of WWII Bud Anderson was credited with 16.25 victories, making him a triple ace.
