The P-12, has more in common with the carrier line than the fighter line.  When fully upgraded it has excellent maneuverability and top speed, allowing you to out turn most other players at your tier.  The P-12 is typical in that it has adequate, though not amazing guns, and a very fragile engine, so head on head attacks are to be avoided at all cost.  Instead, focus on getting used to the diving attack style that american fighters use later on.  Your speed means you have a great climb rate, and your opponents will likely be unable to get out of your gunsights and will have a hard time getting behind you when being attacked from above.  Since American guns do have long overheat times, you'll have plenty of ammo to bring them down despite your lower damage. 

Upgrade path
