The Piper PA-48 Enforcer is a turboprop powered light close air support/ground-attack aircraft built by Piper Aircraft Corp., Lakeland, Florida. It was a development of the original World War II North American P-51 Mustang. The Enforcer concept was originally created and flown by David Lindsay, owner of Cavalier Aircraft, in response to the United States Air Force PAVE COIN program, but Cavalier did not have the political clout or manufacturing abilities to mass-produce the Enforcer, so the program was sold to Piper in 1970.
This was converted to a turbo prop Enforcer from a P-51D Mustang. Everything in front of the wings was cut off and lengthened for the turbo prop. The propeller was rebuilt to resemble the square tipped prop the real plane used. Hard points, bombs and wing tip tanks were added. It is not a hard conversion and makes a great addition to the Mustang collection.
