One of the most familiar aircraft of the Second World War was the famous Curtiss P-40. Originally flown in 1938, the first P-40 was actually a modified P-36 using an inline Allison V12 engine instead of the P-36's bulky radial type. This modification gave the US Army a craft that could compete with a Hurricane or a Messerschmitt. These were the planes that would become known as the British Flying Tigers.
