  • Historical question(s) for Kyokujitsu

    What aircraft were flown by the Chinese and Japanese from 1937-1940, and could I get some pictures/links/stats of these aircraft?

    Actually I reall just need Chinese Aircraft from 1937-1945

      well I know of Col. Chennault's "Flying Tigers" mercenaries. They flew something, but you could have them as a unit. The Chinese airforce was in pretty bad shape and not modernized, so they probably had biplanes, but don't trust me on that one.

        Yup, Chennault, you said? the same "Black sheeps" squadron Chennault?

          No, the "Black Sheep" were Pappy Boyington's squadron flying Corsairs in the Pacific as far as I know. General Chennault took over the American Airforce in China, the "Flying Tigers" who flew those Curtiss P-40s with the Tiger teeth painted on the nose. He took over in July 1942 but the Flying Tigers had been around since 38 or 39, I think, as a volunteer force of Americans helping the Chinese.

            I know about the flying tigers... I really need to know what p.o.s. aircraft the Chinese flew. Not the tigers.

              Yeah the flying tigers were about 41-42 anyway, but from what I know the chinise airforce was small and largely used for reconniance (sp?) and was certainly not on par woth the japanise (sp?), I dont know too much about the actual planes but I should imagine they were 1920-30s British and French designs (but don't quote me on that)
              well hope this helps

                IIRC the nationalist air force was huge in manpower, but greatly lacked any type of equipment. That doesn't help you much does it? sorry

                  Okay... from what I gathered from my Pacific General CD...

                  Gloster Gladiator
                  P-40 Flying Tiger
                  P-40 Warhawk

                  TACTICAL BOMBERS
                  Martin B-10B

                  Vickers 6-Ton B
                  VCL M1931
                  L3/35 Tankette

                  I don't suppose those years are wholly accurate. I guess they could mean they appeared no later then the year quoted. As for pictures, I've no idea... I hope that's some help...
