Introduction
   
This American WW2 fighter was overshadowed by other types during the course of the war, which may explain it being somewhat less present in popular culture.  It's post-war use is limited, but with the Brazilian Air Force which operate the P-40 Warhawk up to 1954 when the type was retired due to wing spar fatigue.   For the benefit of WW2 vintage aircraft amateurs, the type will be available in Brazilian colors.
