Default mahogany wood

I have some rough cut mahogany boards that were supposedly to be used to make wooden props for WW2 for use in the Pacific. The gravel runways beat up the metal props pretty fast and they were expensive.The plan was to use wooden disposable props. The wood is mahogany but as that term has become generic dose any one know what type of mahogany this might be?
It is dark reddish in color and cuts like butter. Some of the board are 2 inches thick by 8 " wide by 7 feet long. Can any one shed any light on this plan? The war ended before it could be implemented.
