North American Aviation won a competition to build a basic trainer that would prepare pilots in
over 50 countries for over 50 years. The design known as the T-6 has a variety of designations
depending on the country that owned them and the model variant. The USAAC referred to them
as AT-6 (Advanced Trainer) while the USN designated them SNJ. The British Commonwealth
countries referred to them as Harvards. In all their variants there were 15,495 aircraft built.
In December 1938 the Brazilian Navy acquired 12 T-6 Texans of the NA-46 variant. In August
1939 the Brazilian Army Air Force acquired 30 of the NA-72 variant. Over the years Brazil
accumulated almost 500 Texans of different variants. An arrangement was reached that allowed
a Brazilian company to manufacture some aircraft. During the 1960s and 1970s some of these
aircraft were outfitted with machine guns, hardpoints for bombs and missiles. T-6D 1261 is on a
pedestal in the small town of Paraguaçu-MG in the Brazilian interior.
