Hist A-36 APACHE

A flight of three A-36A Apache in training flight, United States, 1942.

The A-36 Apache was an American ground-attack and dive bomber aircraft used in WWII by the US Army Air Force and the Royal Air Force. The A-36 first came into service in 1943 and was used in in North Africa Campaign, and then later in the Allied invasion of Sicily and the China-Burma-Indian Theater. The aircraft looked very similar to the P-51A Mustang fighter but had two more .50 caliber machine guns inside the lower engine housing that shot through the propeller arc. The A-36 also had dive breaks installed which limited the dive speed to 630 km/h and made it a very accurate dive bomber. The A-36 Apache was used in service until 1945 but many were withdrawn from service in 1944 and replaced with the P-40 Warhawk and P-47 Thunderbolt. A total of 500 aircraft were manufactured.
