Towards the middle of 1941 the apparatuses and the men were sent to China, where suitable tactics began to be devised for their coordinated use. The plane itself was not bad; in fact it was fast in straight flight, but being heavily armored it was slow to recover from turns. So it was best not to engage an enemy fighter in individual duels; a range of tactics had to be designed in order to compensate for their weaknesses. Thinking to deal a psychological blow to the Japanese, the aviators took as a basis the idea of a (British squadron) painting the noses of their planes with shark mouths. The P-40, thanks to the huge air intake located under the propeller, was the perfect aircraft for this idea. The pilots were named Los Tigres Voladores.
