Some interesting pictures of little known planes that would be darn cool to see some day.

P-43s in China, September, 1943. Claims they were delivered to China in "substantial numbers."

Vultee P-66s Vanguards, October, 1942. They were ordered by Sweden, and siezed by the US and delivered to China.

The chinese used a wide variety of planes, practically anything they could seize. Sorta the Finland of Asia you could say http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif I have a bunch of pics lying around of chinese I-153's, I-16's, A6m's and more. I believe they even used P-36's too.

Not to forget that Chinese airforce is a virtual goldmine for would-be crapplane modellers http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/93.gif :

Specially the P-26 Peashooter as it served against the japanese in the Philippine airforce too http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hmm, funny. At least from the angle of that photograph, the Vultee P-66s look like F-4U Corsairs with straight wings. (similar long noses, similar wide gear, tall thin vertical stabilizers, cockpit set far behind the wing)

The Chinese used a mix of Russian and American and British aircraft. Check the bottom of this web site.

and Wickedpenguin, corsair? I thought that was a bog roll with wings http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. The Hawk is much fatter. It is already in the game.

Yeah, and the P-43 looks like the little brother of a P-47. Was the P-43 designed by Republic too?

I said from the angle of the photograph they looked like Corsairs. I've honestly never seen P-66's before that shot.

Correct. The P43 Lancer was a stepping stone between the Seversky P35 and Republic P47. The Lancer was not a very successful aircraft, much of the ill will towards it was due to it's horrifying stall/spin characteristics.

China certainly had an diverse stable of aircraft. Personally I'd love to see the P-66,P-43 and P-35 make it into PF someday. I've been wanting these lesser known birds for quite a while, but I'll admit that there was little justification for them in FB.
