The Curtiss P-36 Hawk, the firm's Model 75, was an American-designed and built fighter aircraft of the mid-1930s. Two variants, the P-36A and C, were produced in 1938-39 for the US Army Air Corps, with the production totaling 210 aircraft (last 30 a/c were completed as P-36Cs).

It was a single-seat, all-metal low-wing monoplane with fabric-covered control surfaces. It had a retractable undercarriage with the main landing gear rotated 90° to fold flat into the wing. Powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-1830 Twin Wasp two-row radial engine, it was fitted with Curtiss Electric propeller. The P-36A's armament consisted of two machine guns in the nose, while the P-36C had an additional gun mounted in each wing and was fitted with external ammunition boxes under the wings.

The P-36 saw little combat with the US Army Air Forces during World War II, although a few managed to fight against the attacking Japanese invaders over Pearl Harbor.
