Restock: P-40 Warhawk

2064A-Action-Webcard-710

The P-40 Warhawk was a widely used American fighter aircraft of World War II designed and manufactured by the Curtiss-Wright corporation. Lend-Lease P-40s first saw service with

British forces in North Africa, who dubbed the original version the Tomahawk and later improved variants the Kittyhawk. Designed primarily as a ground support aircraft, it was ruggedly built and performed well at low altitudes. It was a capable fighter in air-to-air combat, but not as nimble as many Axis fighters such as the Bf-109 and the A6M Zero.

The Warhawk was used by Allied forces throughout the war and in all theaters of combat except northwestern Europe, where it was hampered by its poor high altitude performance. More than 13,700 P-40s of all types were manufactured during the war, making it the third most-produced American fighter aircraft (after the P-51 and P-47).

Perhaps the most famous of all units to use the P-40 during the war was the 1st American
Volunteer Group, who helped defend China against the invading Imperial Japanese Army before Pearl Harbor and official American involvement in World War II. Known as the Flying Tigers, the AVG famously painted the shark’s mouth design on all of their aircraft.

Restock: Type 95 “Ha-Go”

2102-Action-Webcard-710

The Type 95 “Ha-Go” Light Tank was Japan’s standard issue light tank at the onset of World War II. It featured an armored hull that could withstand all contemporary battlefield small arms, and was armed with a 37mm gun capable of firing armor-piercing and high explosive rounds.  The Type 95 saw service in Manchuria, China, Southeast Asia and the Pacific island campaigns. While out-classed by more powerful Allied medium tanks, the Type 95 still provided an effective mobile punch against infantry and small fortifications throughout the entire war.

Restock: Type 1 47mm Anti-Tank Gun

2018-Action-Webcard-710

The Type 1 47mm Anti-Tank gun was introduced by the Imperial Japanese Army to replace smaller anti-tank guns dating which the 1930’s that were found lacking during clashes with Soviet forces in northern Manchuria. The Type 1 incorporated many advanced design features, including low-profile carriage with split tails and a semi-automatic breech mechanism. The low-profile design allowed the gun to be used from a kneeling or prone position. This, combined with the gunner shield, allowed the operator to use the gun from a more protected position. The Type 1 was designed to combat light tanks, and it was only able to penetrate the armor of the American Sherman tanks in vulnerable flank areas. Nevertheless, the Type 1 was used in great numbers in the defense of Japan’s Pacific possessions.

About the Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate:

The Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate was a single-seat fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Service in WWII. This plane was considered to be the best Japanese fighter to enter into large scale operations during WWII. The Ki-84 Hayate carried a lethal armament that included two 30 mm and two 20 mm cannons. Later models were bottlenecked by poor production quality, an extremely high-maintenance engine, and issues with landing gear and fuel quality. Towards the end of the war, many of the pilots were inexperienced and lacked proper training.

The Ki-84 Hayate saw its first operational active combat involvement during the Battle of Leyete, and the end of 1944. From then, it was used until the end of the Pacific war, often being deployed in the most intense situations. Three types of camouflage and markings exist – Type N, Type B, and Type S. These markings were sanctioned by the Japanese Ministry of Munitions.
