NORTH AMERICAN AT6 / SNJ TEXAN (Harvard)

The story which didn't happen ... outside Atlantic Air Combat
 

See also : KN1F Texan Notes Land Versions Carrier Versions Sea Planes Versions
 

Designed in the late 1930s, this aircraft had a remarquable career that spread over decades so its inclusion the game among other training aircrafts was sort of unavoidable.

AAC is not the place to go through the full story of that particular aircraft and it suffice to say that originating in a 1937 design (NA16) it was declined in a great number of versions and sub-versions, most of them able to carry weapons, some of them being carrier capable.   Below is an uncomplete summary of the key versions of this aircraft.  What this table doesn't show is the amount of modifications brought to this aircraft after the war, especially by France, enabling the Texan/Harvard to act as an able COIN aircraft with double 7.62mm guns in godolas under the wing and HVAR (the French T10 rocket) under the wings..

So a single armed variant is been retained for the purpose of the game, sort of summarizing what this astonishing aircraft can do.   In a way, AAC's AT6F is a simplified Wirraway with a carrier capable SNJ5C variant
