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.

Hmmm... I see that the articles are against National Socialism, though some of the pictures would make you think otherwise, and while I haven't read everything, some of it do seem to be "out there". Some of the aircraft pictures must be speculative, even pure fiction. ::)

http://rareaircraf1.greyfalcon.us/index.html

Ahem... "Czechoslovakia" wasn't a member of the Axis, only The Slovak State, a client state of the Nazis ruled by Jozef Tiso, who got hanged for treason after the war. ::)

... and there I wasted an hour of my life. :(

"Be careful, that site has a lot of crap on it. "

I cannot give enough approval ! That site is exactly the kind of mixture, that tries to
turn rumours and half-truth into facts.
"And for power the Germans were years ahead in jet propulsion at both subsonic and supersonic speeds "
- Actually they were behind their schedule, which would have given a usable jet engine around 1946!
"Its secret was a rocket motor running on liquid nitrogen and alcohol" (about the A4/V2)
- Oh, Robert H. Goddard was already forgotten ?

And statements like "The great contribution of this Orthodox Jewish citizen, born Jan Hoch ..)
in conjunction with "When not gunning down a surrendering German mayor armed only with a white flag.."
makes me at least a little bit unsure about the intentions of the author !

Of course, but the pictures Vietcong posted appear genuine...

Sure, but anyone who posts flying saucer crap obviously has poor quality control, so it's wise to question the provenance of the pictures if there is no other source.

Understood, what I meant by 'genuine' is that the aircraft can be identified as real types,
which means that the pictures may have been published elsewhere, or indeed are
identifiable from records, etc.
Also, Vietcong is a new member here, he's obviously taken the time and effort to find
these images in order to contribute to this thread, and the forum in general, I just
don't want to see him discouraged when we dismiss his efforts, just because they are from
the 'greyfalcon' site.
Vietcong, good work on finding the images in your post, we'll need to research further to
verify if they're genuine. http:// greyfalcon.us is a dodgy site full of 'flying saucer' humbug,
and other wierd conspiracy theory stuff. It's best avoided.



cheers,
Robin.
