Airacobra USSR 19th Guards Fighter Regiment by WS-Clave Airacobra USSR 19th Guards Fighter Regiment by WS-Clave
The Bell P-39 Airacobra was introduced in 1941, and was an unusual fighter aircraft in that it was designed around the 37mm T9 cannon.

The engine was behind the pilot and fed with air via a scoop intake above.  The performance was severely lacking at high altitude, but the P-39 was highly agile and acquitted itself well in the Pacific and Soviet Union.

The P-39 was armed with 1 x 37mm cannon or 20mm cannon firing through the prop, and a variety of machine guns depending on the version.

This example is a P-39N of the 19th Guards Fighter Regiment Soviet Air Force 1942.

Yeah, there's a whole lot of choices, unless you pick something really rare...
