French Armée de l'Air Curtis H-75 Hawk, just before outbreak of WWII. France had ordered Curtis' more modern P-40 Warhawks, but few if any arrived before outbreak of war,  most of order went to Britain by default as P-40 Warhawks, Kittyhawks,  later models with a few other names, for basically same airframe. P-40 was basically reengined Hawk with an inline engine,  necessary fuselage remodelling.
