Manufacturer: Boeing

Model: unknown

Name: Peashooter II

Type: Pursuit, pursuit trainer


Status: Operational

Country: United States of America

Service: U.S. Army Air Corps

Designation: P-26K, TP-26N


The P-26K Peashooter II was an all-metal, enclosed cabin derivative of the successful P-26A pursuit with an inline engine, although it now shared very little in common with the original design.

A tandem-seat trainer version was procured by the U.S. Army Air Corps as the TP-26N.


The tail of the Peashooter II is typically shaped like that of the early B-17s, wings shaped like those of the Model 247 airliner, and the enclosed cockpit was adapted from that of... the AH-56 Cheyenne helicopter, no less! But as dinobatfan rightly pointed out, "Well hey, if it works, why not!?!"

  • This looks REALLY GOOD!!! It really does look like what an advanced P-26 could or would have looked like had they continued with the series. Excellent extrapolation!!! (dinobatfan)
