    The Merlin powered models were the F L. A number of pilots in North Africa, particularly in the 325th FG became aces while flying them. In the Pacific, Merlin models saw combat with several 13th AF squadrons. Robert Westbrook of the 44th FS became an ace while flying the P-40F and later the Allison powered P-40M.
