Created in 30's of XX Century, the North American Aviation T-6 Texan was a single-engine advanced trainer aircraft used for training pilots.

From 1961 to 1975, Portugal, also, used hundreds of T-6G in the counter insurgency role during the Portuguese Colonial War. During this war, almost all the Portuguese Air Force bases and air fields in Angola, Mozambique and Portuguese Guinea had a detachment of T-6Gs.
