What is it? Who made it? and how much action did it see?

Curtiss CW-21 Demon
Saw some action in China in 1939 and 1940.I'm not sure it saw much other action though.It's performance wasn't bad but it's armament wasn't very powerful.

Cockpit looks like a Curtis.

Sounds like Wolf257 knows his stuff, so I'm putting my money there.

Wolf,

You win the prize...an all expense paid date with the Flanker Babe of the Day!!!

Donster will be your chaperon to make sure you behave like a gentleman at all time (Who's going to keep an eye on Donster is another thing all together!).

That's OK,in the spirit of the season I'm going to graciously allow Donster to take my place.After seeing some of the "Flanker Babes" I'd just as soon face a whole Staffle of 109K's while flying a damaged Jug.
Happy New Year!to all on the forum.

Fair enough, after all Donster has expressed a great deal of interest in Moose over the past couple of days.

Curtis Cw-21B Demon. The B model has the gear retract inwards, as apposed to the earlier ones which had P-40 type gear. 24 were ordered by Netherlands East Indies in 1940. That's their markings in the photo. 3 got to China, but saw little action.

Maybe I'll make one for CFS

The 3 that went to China never made it. They had a rather "hard landing" into a mountian top in bad weather.
