About This Content

Fly the legendary P-40E! It was called the Kittyhawk by the Soviets and the British, but the Americans dubbed it the Warhawk. Regardless of the name, the P-40 was the most mass-produced fighter by the US during WWII with many being used by the Soviet Union under the Lend-Lease Act.

In the game, you can fly P-40E during any Career mode timeframe - Battle of Moscow, Battle of Stalingrad and Battle of Kuban - and in multiplayer and Quick Mission Builder.

The P-40 puts up a tough fight and is interesting to fly. It's particularly notable for its powerful armament of six .50 cal. machine guns. An enemy fighter won't last long against the P40’s massive firepower.

The P-40's dimensions are much larger when compared to German and Soviet fighter planes. It gives the pilot some extra room and provides for more armored protection for its pilot. However, its size makes it a bigger target. Stay vigilant and check your six often!

Operation Features

    Engine has no manifold pressure automatic governor. For this reason, manifold pressure not only depends on throttle position, but also from RPM and altitude. This requires additional checking of manifold pressure to not cause engine damage.
  • Engine has a single stage mechanical supercharger which does not require manual control.
  • Engine is equipped with an automatic fuel mixture control which maintains optimal mixture if mixture lever is set to Auto Rich (66%25) position. To use automatic mixture leaning to reduce fuel consumption during flight it is necessary to set mixture lever to Auto Lean (33%25) position. In the case of malfunction of the automatic mixture control, the mixture lever should be set to Full Rich (100%25) position. To stop the engine mixture lever should be set to the Cut Off (0%25) position.
  • Engine RPM has an automatic governor and it is maintained at the required RPM corresponding to the governor control lever position. The governor automatically controls the propeller pitch to maintain the required RPM. Also it is possible to turn off the governor and control propeller pitch manually.
  • Water and oil radiators shutters are joint with engine cowl outlet shutters and manually operated.
  • Airplane has a very small stability margin in yaw. When angle of side slip is more than 12° plane becomes unstable in yaw and starts to increase the side slip angle by itself. Because of this, it is necessary to accurately operate the rudder pedals and pay attention to the side slip indicator.
  • Airplane has trimmers for all flight-controls: pitch, roll and yaw.
  • Landing flaps have a hydraulic actuator and they can be extended to any angle up to 45°.
  • Airplane has a tailwheel control system which is unlocked by the rudder if the rudder pedal is pressed more than half of its range. The tailwheel remains locked if pedals are deflected less than half way. Because of this, it is necessary to avoid large rudder pedal inputs when moving at high speed.
  • Airplane has independent left and right hydraulic wheel brake controls. To apply either brake push the upper part of the rudder pedal.
  • Airplane is equipped with a parking brake system.
  • Airplane has three fuel gauges which show the level in each fuel tank.
  • It is impossible to open or close the canopy at high speed due to strong airflow. The canopy has an emergency release system for bailouts.
  • Airplane is equipped with a mechanical release system for a single bomb.
  • When rockets are installed there is a salvo controller, it has three launch modes: single fire, fire two in a salvo or fire four in a salvo.
  • The gunsight has a sliding sun-filter. There is also a back-up mechanical sight which can be used if main sight is damaged.
