An all-metal fighter and ground-attack aircraft, the P-40 Warhawk was first seen in October of 1938. Only the P-51 Mustang and the P-47 Thunderbolt saw a greater production run, and the P-40 remained on front line service with nearly every Allied military through the end of World War II. It was also a popular aircraft in China, first with the American pilots of the Flying Tigers and then with the Chinese themselves following the AVG disbandment.
