It is said there https://bluejacket.com/ww2_12-07-41_carriers.html that at the time of Pearl Harbor attack four USN flattop-based units were using (as supplementary type of course) the SNJ-3 Texan scouts. Has anybody ever seen the gray-painted SNJ-3 sporting 5-S-... (Yorktown), 41-F-... (Ranger), 6-T-... (Enterprise), 8-F-... (Hornet) or 72-F-... (Wasp) fuselage codes? Were these aircraft hook-equipped SNJ-3Cs or "plain" SNJ-3s with no arrester gear? Did they have the rear-cockpit gun or not? Cheers Michael
