Curtiss Mohawk II

The Curtiss Mohawk II was the designation given to a small number of Hawk H75A-2s that escaped from France to Britain after the German victory in June 1940. They came from the second French order for 100 Hawk 75s. These aircraft were powered by the 1,050hp Pratt & Whitney R-1830-S1C3G engine, and were armed with six 7.5mm guns, two in the nose and four in the wings, an increase of two on the original H75A-1/ Mohawk I.
