Created at the same time as the YT-34F Twin Mentor, the Victor was another take of the Beech T-34 Mentor, but this time as a single-seater that could be marketed as a light attack fighter for COIN operations.

The original Beech Mentor photo is presented at the bottom of the page. The Model designation "E45" was chosen as a logical continuation of the last real company variant which was the D45.
