The Lockheed P-38 Lightning is an American fighter aircraft used in World War II. The P-38 was capable of fulfilling multiple roles including dive bombing, level bombing, ground-attack, photo reconnaissance and as a long-range fighter escort.

In GameEdit

The P-38 Lightning was depicted in Call of Duty 2: Big Red One, in which a squadron of these appeared mid-way through the mission "Liberators" and supposedly assisted in escorting the bombers to their targets. They also appeared in the mission "Tankers" to provide close air support for the tank column in eliminating a German supply depot.

The F-5 Photo-Reconnaissance version of the P-38 is depicted in Call of Duty: World at War as the Recon Plane killstreak reward (although it is not visible in the sky).
