About the North American T-6:
Known as the "Pilot Maker" because it trained over 100,000 allied pilots in WWII, the Texan was built as an advanced fighter trainer for the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy and many Allied Nations.
The designation AT-6 was used by the Army Air Corps, while the Air Force referred to it as a T-6, while the Navy called the aircraft an SNJ. The Commonwealth Air Forces referred to it as a Harvard.
They were designed to be flown by experienced pilots transitioning to the hot front line fighters of the 1940's and were used to teach air combat, gunnery, bombing and aircraft carrier operations.
