P-40B/E TOMAHAWK

While Warhawk was the official US designation for the P-40 fighter, the Soviets and the British Commonwealth used other names. The RAF used Tomahawk for models equivalent to the P-40B and P-40C, and Kittyhawk for models equivalent to the P-40D and E, all of which would play a key role in the CBI where they were piloted by the Flying Tigers. The shark-faced nose art of their P-40s remains among the most recognizable image of any individual combat aircraft or combat unit of World War 2.

BUFFALO MK. I (F2A)

The F2A Buffalo was already on its way out by the time the United States entered World War 2, the planes considered overweight and too cumbersome to fly.

HURRICANE MK. IIB

The Hurricane fighter was built by Hawker Aircraft after the RAF asked for a low wing monoplane in response to the increasing threat from Nazi Germany in the mid 1930s. The improved Mk (Mark) IIb first took to the air in June 1940, and although it was classed as a Mk II the only difference from the earlier Mk I was that it used the Merlin XX engine, increasing the top speed to 342 mph (550 kmh) at super-high altitude of 22,000 feet.
