A naval version for Warhawk?
 
I share with you some pictures of fighters Curtiss P-40 operating aboard aircraft carriers or on the flight deck. Some questions for aviation and history enthusiasts of WW2. There was a naval version of the P-40? Which countries have used during the war and which Operating Theatres? To view photos visit the link below:

For the invasion of North Africa P-40s did fly off American carriers to support allied troops. The invasion was into Vichy French territory and the planes landed there after control of airports was obtained. The small carrier(s) are configured to transport P-40s for offload at a secured port. They bear the same generation of U.S. markings as shown in photos of P-40s used in the invasion campaign.
