Seversky P-35 Guardsman

The Seversky P-35 Guardsman was an early fighter for the USAAC. Initially delivered to the 1st Pursuit Group at Selfridge Michigan, the Guardsman was obsolete by the time it arrived in active service. The pilots appreciated the airplanes ruggedness, although the P-35 did not have self sealing fuel tanks nor did it have armor. The aircraft was also underpowered. Several versions were sold as export versions. P-35s also fought in the battle for the Phillipines in 1941. This P-35 is actually the two-seat version that was originally allocated to Sweden. In US service, it would have been an AT-12 Advanced Trainer.
