    PZL P.24F and G in Greece:

    In late 1937 r and early 1938 Greece took delivery of twelve P.24F's armed with two cannons and 24 P.24G's armed with four machine guns. Both variants were powered with Gnôme-Rhône 14N 07 engine rated at 950/970 hp, driving a threeblade propeller. Compared to earlier versions the aircraft featured altered engine cowling and a propeller spinner. The top speed was 430 km/h.
    The aircraft were initially in natural metal finish and wore numbers in the range of D101-D136 on sides of the fuselage. They were used in fighter squadrons (mira) nos. 21, 22, 23. In 1940 all aircraft were re-armed with four machine guns, i. e. converted to P.24G, and finished in multi-tone camouflage. During the war against Italy and Germany, from November 1940 until late April 1941 Greek pilots flying P.24's were credited with 40 enemy aircraft destroyed (36 Italian and 4 German). On 2 November 1940 Lt. Marinos Mitralexis downed an Italian bomber by ramming. This was probably
    the first combat ramming in mid-air during WWII. One of the last P.24's was shot down over Crete. One P.24 captured by the Italians was still in the Italian Air Force inventory in 1943.
