Mohawks of the British Commonwealth

The Royal Air Force and South African Air Force were some of the operators of the Curtiss Hawk 75, the export version of the P-36 Hawk. In RAF or SAAF service, these aircraft were called Mohawk. Here are a few examples, created for Phil Listemann’s book Squadrons! No. 17 – The Curtiss Mohawk.
