Let's be precise chaps, it's not a P-51A. It's a P-51 and so the armament is just normal.
P-51 was the first order of the U.S. Army, designated NA-91 by North American.
Since the U.S. Army wasn't happy with the mixed armament on british Mustangs, they opted for the depicted 4 hispano 20mm wing cannon loadout.
That didn't pay out and many aircrafts of this lot were converted to F-6A recon planes or shifted to the brits who reverted the armament to their mixed layout again, designating the aircraft "Mustang Mk.IA".

The P-51A would be "NA-99" or "Mustang Mk.II" and it would carry cal .50s in the wings.

Best regards - Mike

 :-[ Again , I am sorry , I draw from the hip too often :)

I never knew about the Hispano armament, then again I am not a fighter type at all. I am glad things was put straight right away
