Curtiss P-40 in Days of InfamyEdit

The Warhawk was the front line fighter of the US Army Air force in World War II, equipping nearly all major allies air forces. When Japan entered World War II in late 1941, all P-40s in the Pacific were destroyed on the ground in both Hawaii, and the Philippines.

The P-40s that equipped allied air forces proved to be no match for the Zero, and they were chewed up along nearly every front by the Japanese fighter.

Curtiss P-40 in The War That Came EarlyEdit

The P-40's were among the many fighter's that made up the US air defense in the Philippines and Hawaii, when war broke out with Japan in January 1941.

Curtiss P-40 in WorldwarEdit

The P-40 Warhawk was the front line fighter of the US Army Air force in World War II, equipping nearly all major allied air forces. When the Race arrived in mid 1942, Warhawks were swatted out of the sky in large numbers. Still, in spite of their inferiority against Race Killercrafts, they were more than capable in ground attack roles, and more than a match for Helicopters.

The P-40 was kept in combat until the end of the war. Their last great contribution was in the defense of Denver in 1944. By now, the planes had adopted a hit and run strategy in which they would quickly dive on the enemy, shoot them up, then wheel for home just as fast.
