In 1948, the designation P-51 (P for pursuit) was changed to F-51 (F for fighter). At the start of the Korean War the Mustang once again proved its usefulness. With the availability of F-51Ds a substantial number were shipped via aircraft carriers to the combat zone for use initially by both the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) and USAAF. Rather than employing them as interceptors or "pure" fighters, the F-51 became a ground attack aircraft, fitted with rockets and bombs.
