Estimated Shipping: 2-3 Business Days
The Lockheed P2V Neptune was derived as a replacement for the PV-1 Ventura and PV-2 Harpoon as a land-based naval patrol bomber. The design began as a private venture in the early 1940s, and the first P2V took to the air in 1945. The type quickly entered production, and the US Navy began operations in 1947. The Neptune soon proved its value and soldiered on in the service of many nations, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, France, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, as well as the US Navy, Marine Corps, Army, and even the CIA. Once retired from service, the Neptune also saw service as firebombers.
