Based on the pin up girl style livery painted on the famous AVG P-40s, best remembered as the ‘Flying Tigers’. The nickname was bestowed by the grateful Chinese after the American pilots attacked a large number of Japanese fighters over Kunming on December 20, 1941. Recognized by their iconic shark-faced nose art, the group was comprised of 3 squadrons, the 1st going by "Adam and Eves", the 2nd "Panda Bears" and the 3rd Squadron of the AVG adopted the moniker "Hells Angels". They were only in action for 7 months but during those 7 months they fought in about 50 air battles, usually outnumbers at least 2 to one, they never lost a single battle.
