CW-22 ✪ Falcon II
CW-22 Falcon (SNC-1) - a two-seat cantilever all-metal low-wing aircraft designed for advanced pilot training and solving a number of other tasks, including it could be used as a light bomber or reconnaissance aircraft.
The prototype of the CW-22 made its first flight in 1940, serial production since 1941. The aircraft has been in service with the US Air Force since March 1942. In addition, it was in service with the aviation of the Dutch East Indies, Colombia, Peru, Turkey, Chile and Bolivia. They were used by the Americans at bases in Australia since April 1942 as training, liaison and close scouts.
Both modifications, CW-22 and CW-22B, were armed with two machine guns - a fixed course and a movable one at the observer-gunner.
The US Navy ordered a batch of 455 training aircraft for advanced pilot training, initially designated CW-22N, and renamed SNC-1 Falcon in the US Navy. Part of the SNC-1 was sold to American private owners after the end of the war, and was removed from service in the United States in 1946.
