Related Curtiss products

Aside from the Hawks, Curtiss made a number of other aircraft. The Falcon may not leap to mind, nor the SBC Helldiver biplane, but the SB2C (for better or worse) does. It replaced the Dauntless as the fleet dive bomber, but was beset with problems - to the point where there was a congressional inquiry! It did see later life in French and Italian forces, but overall it was not a popular aircraft.

This section will go into a little detail about other Curtiss (or Curtiss-Wright) products, though I can't promise it'll be extensive.
