Chennault managed to obtain the Curtis P-40 that was in production for the British and Americans. The AVG fighters were taken off a Curtiss assembly line building Tomahawk IIB models for the Royal Air Force in North Africa. However, there is evidence that Curtiss-Wright used older assemblies in the aircraft sold to China, making them essentially the same as the U.S. Army's earlier P-40B model. (The major difference was that the P-40B/Tomahawk IIA had an exterior fuel-tank membrane, while the IIB had an interior membrane, believed by the RAF to be more effective at sealing fuel-tank leaks.) The planes were purchased without "government-furnished equipment" such as reflector gunsights, radios, and wing guns; the lack of these items caused continual difficulties for the AVG in Burma and China. It was actually an upgraded version of the popular P-36 Hawk with an in-line engine. The P-40's good qualities included pilot armor, self-sealing fuel tanks, sturdy construction, heavy armament (two 50-cal. and four 30-cal. machine guns), and a faster diving speed than most Japanese planes; used to advantage in accordance with Chennault's tactics as they would reach a higher altitude and then pounce upon Japanese planes. General Chennault was a masterful combat teacher and he taught his men unorthodox tactics which took advantage of the P-40's good qualities. Spare parts were almost impossible to obtain, though the AVG did receive 50 replacement P-40E fighters directly from USAAF stocks toward the end of its combat tour.
