While never considered quite the
equal of the Me 109 in a straight up dog fight, a skilled P40E
Kittyhawk pilot could put up a stiff fight. If the advantages of
the P40E like better high-speed handling, better roll speed and
slightly better turning circle were utilised effectively, their pilots
would often come out on top. P40's of all types bore the brunt of
the desert air to air combat before being replaced later by spitfires.
When sufficient spitfires were available to handle the threat to the of
the Me 109s, P40 squadrons switched to ground attack roles.
