**Horizontal stabilizer is not perfectly level, but not super noticeable.**

The Bell P-39 Airacobra was one of the principal American fighter aircraft in service at the start of World War II. Although its mid-engine placement was innovative, the P-39 design was handicapped by the lack of an efficient turbo-supercharger, limiting it to low-altitude work. The P-39 was used with great success by the Soviet Air Force, who scored the highest number of individual kills attributed to any U.S. fighter type. Other important users were the Free French and co-belligerent Italian air forces. Together with the derivative P-63 Kingcobra, these aircraft would be the most successful mass-produced, fixed-wing aircraft manufactured by Bell. GC II/6 had been disbanded under the Vichy regime, but was later reformed as GC II/6 Travail. The Free French P-39Ns and P-39Qs operated initially on coastal patrols in North Africa, and then flew close-support missions over Southern France and Italy until the end of the war in Europe.
