Based on the volunteer fighter squadron formed to help the Chinese fight the Japanese before the U.S. entered World War II. more
A volunteer fighter squadron is formed by General Claire Chennault to help the Chinese fight against the Empire of Japan before the United States enters WWII. The aging Chinese planes are no match for the superior Japanese forces, until the volunteers arrive in American-made P-40 War Hawks. The two squadrons fly side by side, in fighter planes emblazoned with the gaping tiger's teeth logo. After Pearl Harbor, the Flying Tigers become an effective squadron in the U.S. Air Force.
