The Pittsburgh PT-1 Special is a retired military training aircraft in Just Cause Hjallesund.
It takes the appearance of a WWII training aircraft. It has a large, rounded front end to accommodate the large radial engine. The majority of the aircraft takes its appearance from a North American T-6 Harvard, with the tail plane directly taken from a from a Supermarine Spitfire and wings from a P-51 Mustang.
There are armed rebel variants, equipped with unguided rockets and machine guns, or bombs, cannons and machine guns.
"A shallow hum of a radial piston engine, followed by the ear-splitting roar of the propellers tearing the air apart" is how one may describe this. The terrifying sight of this beast of the skies heading straight toward you may startle you, but not to worry, as this craft has no guns nor bombs (yet). This was the Hjallesund Ilmavoimat's first training aircraft, made to train crews for the real torpedo bombings and strafing runs to come. This was a glorious icon of co-operative engineering, and still is, the glory handed down the line of air forces and private groups. This is also a great choice for display teams wishing to show off a pint of history to the public in style"- In-game description.
As a training aircraft, it performs very well with a high top speed and great maneuverability. The only major problem is that it is very liable to stall at low speeds or steep inclines because of its weight. As a training aircraft it has no weaponry, although some rebel variants are armed with improvised weaponry from more modern aircraft, which are adequate during attack runs, although it does struggle in dogfights, and is not recommended for long range dog fights due to the enemy most times having guided missiles.
