Power Rubber

By STEVE GARDNER

   In 1937, Curtiss decided to update the P-36 Mohawk to contemporary standards. To do this they used the standard
method of the day: more power. The 900-horse Wright was replaced by an Allison liquid-cooled V-12 with 200 more horses and less than half the frontal area of the big Wright. This
increased the weight by better than a thousand pounds and lengthened it by three feet.

The result was the P-AO; a rugged, multi-purpose airplane that found work throughout WW-II with a number of different countries. Production stopped in 1944 after 13,738 were built.

Several examples are still flying today with the Confederate Air Force and other old airplane buffs.
