Yes, rather dapper looking fellow with an intense posture - and the aircraft firmly on the ground.
Fighter from the USA - with a convoluted designation, based on a well known design.
Very famous manufacturer.

It is a Curtiss, but never had an opportunity to release ammunition on a morphed gorilla.
Only one built and described as "yet another of a seemingly incessant one-off variations on the Curtiss Hawk theme."
Flown in 1930.

Stating it was a Hawk variant was a unnecessary give away.
But thanks anyway.

Before I saw Noyade's post, I thought it looked like something designed by someone who thought the Pou was too mainstream. But in a steep climb, it will punch above its weight in the blotting-out-the-sun department.

teusje,

Thank you. A fairly obscure type, it seems, with only 4 built.

Sorry, nothing on hand, so Open House
