|The P-40 Warhawk is one of the best-known U.S. fighters of World War II. But despite its fame, the P-40 was not one of the company's best performers. Outclassed in virtually every way by other aircraft of its time, it was usually the loser when pitted against a superior foe in air-to-air combat. Slow, lacking in maneuverability, and not well armed, it was nearly a decade behind the competition when it became the most important U.S. fighter during the early stages of the war.|
