There is a pic of an actual 'AT-6 Texan' modified
as "Guhn-gook-ki - National Foundation" (and of model replicas) at
It says these were the first "combat" planes of
ROKAF. They were fitted with bomb racks and flew bombing missions starting
on June 26, 1945.
Apparently, the old Japanese planes ROKAF had were
destroyed on ground and did not see any action in the skies.
I wonder how these refitted AT-6's match up with
NKAF YAKs, etc.
BTW, the ROKA homepage says it had an
"armored" unit in 1949. I wonder what armor this unit had?
