In 1948, the designation P-51 (P for pursuit) was changed to F-51 (F for fighter). At the start of the Korean War in June 1950, the Mustang once again proved its usefulness. With the availability of F-51Ds in service and in storage, 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 USAF. Rather than employing them as interceptors or "pure" fighters, the F-51 was given the task of ground attack, fitted with rockets and bombs. After the initial invasion from North Korea, USAF units were forced to fly from bases in Japan, and F-51Ds could hit targets in Korea that short-ranged F-80 jet fighters could not. By 1953 the iconic pison-engined fighter had been replaced by improved long-range jet aircraft.
