I was under the impression Oleg mentioned maybe by mid summer.

It will be flyable,but not until October(I think) according to Oleg in the sticky, in the ORR.

I hope sooner rather than later. The P36 (Hawk 75) will be a welcome addition.

It was a far better aircraft than people realize. The second highest scoring Finnish squadron was armed with it, and the French actually had a pretty good record with it agianst the 109E. And the P36 was one of the first American aircraft to get a kill in WW2, scoring a Zero during the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Should be easy enough to model, since its' cockpit is almost identical to the Tomahawk-it's a near classic case of two birds with one stone.

Looks like a real crap plane. I really hope someone will make a 'pit for it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I know the British really liked it, for it's roll rate I think. Skychimp can probably shed more light onto it.

The pit has been being modelled for some time now, I just can't find a current status, so I didn't know if it would make the cut or not:

The H-75 was a little on the slow side, but it was extremely manueverable. Much more so than the Spit I or Bf-109E
