The Mako is a ramjet assisted experimental fighter, a peculiar hybrid that uses two propulsions: a conventional propeller for take off and landing and a ramjet engine that takes over when the craft reaches 250 mph.
There was a real-world prototype of this fighter. In 1945, one P-51 "Mustang", loaned to RAF, was equipped with experimental ramjet boosters. // Chris Gibson, Tony Buttler British Secret Projects — Hypersonics, Ramjets & Missiles. — Midland Publishing, Ltd, 2007.

The name and design of the unit suggests it was inspired by the P-51, a real life fighter used during WWII.
