    AD Flying Boat is a patrol aircraft for cooperation with warships. The creator was Lt. Linton Hope and got the form of a conventional biplane seaplane with biplane tail surfaces and a double rudder.

  • Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov

    Suvorov is considered one of the best military leaders of all time, most probably famous for his crossing of the Alps following Hannibal's model, although without elephants. However, there were more generals in his family, but they did not achieve the success of Alexander Vasilyevich. It is ironic that this man, a stronghold of the tsarist regime and a staunch supporter of the French revolutionary troops, became one of the symbols and traditional legendary strongholds of the Soviet army.

  • Boeing P-12 and F4B fighters

    Already during the tests of the XF3B-1 navy fighter, the Boeing factory saw the possibility of further development of the structure into a machine that could replace both the naval F2B and F3B and the military PW-9, and soon began self-financed construction of two prototypes.

  • Boeing PW-9 and FB fighters

    In 1922, production of 200 MB-3A fighters, which Boeing was building under a license from Thomas-Morse , was slowly coming to an end, and William Boeing began to look for a new type to provide the factory with work.

  • Curtiss BFC / BF2C Goshawk fighters

    In the 1930s, Curtiss-Wright lost much of its position in the Navy. The last more successful fighter type he built for the US Navy was the F7C-1 from 1928, which was soon moved to the Marine Corps, and then the two-seat F8C-1 / F8C-3 Falcon and F8C-4 / F8C-5 Helldiver. These were almost immediately transferred for observation and dive bombing, again mainly in the Marine Corps, and the Navy's fighter squadrons, meanwhile, fully occupied rival Boeing F4Bs. In 1932, therefore, Buffalo decided to re-create a naval variant of the proven Hawk series, at that time still manufactured for the Air Force.

  • Curtiss F6C Hawk fighters

    When Curtiss created the P-1 Hawk, the US Navy's eternal rival for the U.S. Air Force, also reached for a promising type. The result was the F6C-1, the first of a series of aircraft serving in the Navy back in 1937, long after the elimination of their last army counterparts.

  • Curtiss P-1 Hawk fighters

    The early 1920s were not exactly successful for Curtiss, just as other companies suffered from a lack of orders. Therefore, when a number of Curtiss racing planes were successful, the company decided at its own expense to adapt them to a fighter aircraft in an effort to achieve an army contract. The project was given the company name Model 33. The fuselage was metal, welded, and from the racing R-6 took over the engine Curtiss D-12 with the hood. The wings had a narrow Curtiss C-62 profile and a larger span than the R-6, so it required two sets of N-shaped struts, but again they had surface cooling.

  • Curtiss P-6 Hawk fighters

    The culmination of the original, biplane line of Curtiss Hawk fighters was the Curtiss P-6, created in 1927, originally as a powerful racing conversion of fighters. The result was eventually one of the iconic fighters of the first half of the 1930s.
