Seversky 2PA/AT-12 Guardsman

In 1937, Seversky developed a two-seat export version of the P-35 fighter.  Designated the 2PA Guardsman, two were sold to the Soviet Union (and possibly ended up in Spain), twenty to Japan and 52 to Sweden.

The Japanese 2PAs were designated the A8V and saw combat in China.  Only two of the 52 Swedish aircraft made it to Sweden; the remaining 50 being impressed by the U.S. Army Air Corps.  Designated the AT-12, these aircraft were used in the advanced training role.
