Medal of Honor Wiki

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk is an American single-engined, fighter and ground-attack aircraft which is featured in Medal of Honor: Rising Sun and in Medal of Honor: Airborne. The Warhawk was used by most Allied powers during World War II, and remained in frontline service until the end of the war. The P-40's lack of two-speed supercharges made it inferior against the Luftwaffe fighters but it was suprisingly well performed as a ground support aircraft and as an air superiority fighter.  The P-40 offered the additional advantage of low cost, which kept it in production as a ground-attack aircraft long after it was obsolete as a fighter.

The Warhawk featured in the mission: In Search of Yamashita's Gold where Raj a member of the The American Volunteer Group (Flying Tigers) flew one to recon the temple before he was shot down. Later Sgt.Griffin found the wreckage of the fighter but Raj was taken prisoner by the Japanese.
