The T-6 Texan is a single-engine advanced trainer aircraft used to train fighter pilots of the United States Army Air Forces, United States Navy, Royal Air Force and other air forces of the British Commonwealth during World War II.

The T-6 is known by a variety of designations, depending on the model and operating air force, such as the "AT-6", the "SNJ" and "Harvard". The T-6 originates from the North American NA-16 prototype which was first flown on April 1, 1935.

The T-6 originated from the American NA-16 prototype which was modified as the NA-26 and entered USAC "Basic Combat" aircraft competition in March 1937. Production of the first model began, and there were 180 supplied to the USAAC as the BC-1 and 400 to the RAF as the Harvard I. The US Navy received 16 modified aircraft, designated as the SNJ-1, and the 61 as the SNJ-2 with a different engine. The AT-6, which was equivalent to the BC-1A was designated as the Harvard II for RAF/RCAF orders and 1,173 were supplied by purchase or Lend Lease, mostly operating in Canada. Next comes the AT-6A, based on the NA-77 design powered by Pratt & Whitney R-1340-49 Wasp radial engine. The USAAF received 1,549 and the US Navy 270 (as the SNJ-3). It has a maximum speed of 208 mph at 5,000 ft. and a range of 730 miles.

The Texans were put into service during the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Texans had also been a regular participant in air shows and were used in many movies.
