Douglas 8A in Peruvian service

The most successful Northrop design continued in production as Douglas took over after Northrop collapsed in 1937.

[ img ]

Designed as a retractible undercarriage version of the A-17 for the USAAC in 1936 as the A-17A, and were further upgraded to become the Douglas 8A export aircraft. In 1938 Peru became the third export customer, after Sweden and Argentina, and ordered 10 of the 8A-3P model.
The aircraft were used in the attack and reconnaissance role by the XXXI Escuadrón de Información Estratégica y Ataque, and were blooded in the 1941 war with Ecuador.
Pre-war Norway had also ordered the aircraft as the 8A-5N model, basically the same as the 8A-3P but with a more powerful engine and more armament, but the country had been invaded by Germany before they could be delivered. Instead these aircraft were used by the Norwegian government in exile in Canada for pilot training, until replaced by other types. Norway attempted to sell their 34 aircraft to Peru, but the US embargoed most of the aircraft and kept them as A-33-DE trainers, with only 13 aircraft going to Peru.
In Peru the 8A aircraft remained in service until the late 1950's.

Ce two Libyan "Fitter" involved in the 1981 Sidra air battle were Su-22M3. The one you have posted is Su-22M4, the M3 variant hasn't the large dorsal air scoop.

North American NA-50 "Torito"

While the AT6/SNJ Harvard/Texan is iconic as "the" WWII trainer, North American had designed a light fighter-bomber version as the NA-50.

[ img ]

From the origial NA-16 trainer, the NA-44 was designed as a low cost combat aircraft. A sales tour of South America led to an order of 7 aircraft being made by Peru - other countries also placed orders, but those were filled by more updated versions.
The aircraft that were built for Peru were designated the NA-50, and without a name from North American they were called "Little Bulls" by the Peruvians. The aircraft arrived in Peru in early 1939 and were the first retractible undercarriage aircaft in military service there. One aircraft was lost early in an aerobatics accident, and with the Ecuadorian-Peruvian War of 1941 another aircraft was lost in combat. In combat the Toritos wore individualised nose cowling colours for easy identification, as was the Peruvian style of the time.
By 1947 they were replaced in frontline service by Curtis P-36 Hawks, and the surviving aircraft were transferred to training duties until 1950 when they were decommissioned.
In 1954 a single flyable aircraft was assembled from the mothballed hulks, and this aircraft was used as an Air Force display machine until damaged in 1961. It was again rebuilt, but now is mounted on a plinth, painted as the aircraft lost in combat in 1941.

Corrected pilot name, thanks @reytuerto
