Uruguay Air Force (la Fuerza Aérea Uruguay)

Aircraft flown by the Uruguayan Air Force in the 1930s and 1940s were mainly European and included the Potez XXV, A.2 TOE, the SPAD S.VII and S.XIII, the de Havilland DH.82A Tiger Moth, and the IMAM Ro.37.  Gradually, the UAF transitioned to American aircraft such as the Beech AT-11, Douglas C-47 Skytrains, Waco JHD and North American AT-6 Texan trainers, and North American B-25J Mitchell bombers.  North American F-51D Mustangs followed in the early 1950s.
