North American P-64

North American designed a single-seat fighter variant of their successful AT-6 Texan for export.  Seven aircraft were delivered to Peru in 1939.  Another six were built for the Royal Thai air force but were seized by the U.S. in route to Thailand when that nation fell to Japan in 1941.

The Thai fighters entered USAAF service and were designated as the P-64.  These aircraft served as advanced trainers.
