P-40E Brazil 1 by WS-Clave P-40E Brazil 1 by WS-Clave
The Curtiss Kittyhawk or P-40E served with a wide number of Air Forces during WW2. It was developed from the earlier Tomahawk, but never achieved the status of other allied fighters of the era.

The P-40E was used by the USAAC, and was known as the Kittyhawk 1A by other forces including the RAF, RAAF, RCAF, RNZAF, and Soviet Union

It was armed with 6 x 12.7mm machine guns and could also carry bombs on underwing hardpoints.

This example is a P-40E of the Brazilian Air Force, circa 1942.

All the family is called "-hawk", because it descends from the P-36 "Hawk"

They are - The P-40B was Tomahawk, and P-40E Warhawk, but that was only to foreign buyers... in the US they were just P-40Es...
