Hallo WAKEN !!!
According to the Polish publication TBU no.113 Curtiss Hawk A-1 couldn't carry bombs but A-2 136 kg.Besides,the first forty of all A-2 serie were equipped with A-1 R-1830-SCG engine and wings.

Sorry mon captain, but your informations are not in the AJ Press publications. Thank you very much for precision to.
 
Hi Jarda Rankl !!!
It's very nice that the AJ-press publication come to be well-known in all the world,especially in Czech.My info is additional to yours which should be enought for Waken.Besides, the colour profiles are excelent. Well done Jarda Rankl.
Do you read in Polish?

all the best
 
to Wurger : I am glad you have complemented my information as the details you provided were not really featured in my resources. You are right that AJ Press books are very popular here, especially after the recent inprovement in print quality ang graphic. I buy the books in the original language, not in Czech. I have not problem reading Polish as I have been Polish books for more than thirty years now and our languages are very similar.

Hallo Jarda !!!
Thank you for your replay.You are right our languages are very similar really.I haven't had any problem with your language too. Especially,I lived some years near Polish_Czech borderline.As I remember the Czech TV programmes have been often much better than polish.

Sorry if I'm too late

but the both models, A1 and A2, had one bomb rack under each wing
mounted or not, used or not, it is another question.

Yes, according to the Curtiss type description all airframes had this built-in as standard.

I am interested in all sorts of manuals and technical descriptions on the P36/Hawk 75. You have any sources?

To add to above information the Curtiss manual describes an "over-load" useful weight (1.100 kgs. - as opposed to "normal" useful load - 550 kgs.). With full tanks (165 US gls.) and a cruising speed of 200 mph. at 19.000 feet, range is quoted as 1.300 sm. for the Cyclone-powered version. With the Twin Wasp, 1.200 sm. at 17.000 feet. No reserve figures are stated.
