That "BT-9" would be the NA-57 export version for the Armée de l'Air and Aeronavale.
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=665.0

Die Flugzeugführer - Ausbildung der Deutschen Luftwaffe 1935-1945, Band I/Band II adds:

Aero 101, Aero Sport S I, Avia Bk.534), Avia Fl.3, Bloch 200 (B.200), Bloch MB.151/MB.152, Caproni Ca.113, Caudron C.18, Curtiss Hawk 75A, Dewoitine D.520, Fiat CR.42, Fiat G.50,  Fokker D.VII, Fokker G.1, Fokker F.IX, Letov S.328, Macchi MC.202/MC.205, Morane-Saulnier MS.406/410, North American NA-64, Potez 63, Praga E.39, Praga E.241, PZL-11, Raka Kl Ic, Raka Rk IIb, Ro.41, Tipsy S.2, Vought V-85-G

Also listed are NA-84 Harvards which seems improbable.

http://www.warbirdsresourcegroup.org/LRG/foreign.html adds:

PZL P-7a, PZL P-37B/PZL.43A, Potez 25 (Polish), PWS-26, RWD-8, Ilyushin Il-2, Gloster Gladiator, Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Typhoon, Republic P-47D-5RE, Martin B-26B.

NB: this source also lists the NA-64 as being "French (license-built)"!  ::)

This thread made me do some google searches for the rumored re-engined spitfire.  Never knew whether it was real or faked.  I just came across another forum that may be of use:

Jemiba, seems like a great book! But I think you got confused here: the thread is NOT about Axis aircraft taken by the Allies after the war... it's about Allied aircraft CAPTURED by the Axis forces DURING the war!

There was a bunch of English and American aircrafts also captured by the Regia Aeronautica during WWII, for sure there were Blenheim, Liberator and Lightining in the list with some more....

". it's about Allied aircraft CAPTURED by the Axis forces "

Oops, I beg your pardon ! I should at least always read, before typing, not to mention
thinking ...   :-[

But "KG 200", or "Kampfgeschwader 200" seems to be a good keyword for a search.
