Any idea about availabilty of P40N in PF?
(sorry Luthier, I know you must be tired of the constant bombardment of new plane requests...)

The P40 N was the last (and fastest at 378mph.) version of the P40 to see production. Just over 5000 examples of this type were produced, the final aircraft coming off the line in November of 1944. It was widely used by the USAAF and RAAF in the Pacific, and had the most radical solution to rear visibility applied to the P40 series. It played a significant role in the battles in New Guinea, being flown there by both RAAF and USAAF units.

It's level speed would make it competetive with all but the KI 84, and NO Japanese AC could out dive it.

Thanks for your consideration...

The P-40N was also used by the Dutch flying under RAAF command I believe.
Would be a great aicraft to have.
