521 is a drawing number Hesham ,not a designation.

(tek. : abbreviation for : tekening , means drawing)
I did a little digging in my files and came up with a redraw I did (apparently for "American Secret Projects") of the Vought CVS-4431 V-155B. I also have drawings for the V-155, including Inboard Profiles dated 5-27-37.

HOpefully attached is my redraw of the V-155B 3-view, which the only one I have done.

Congratulations on an excellent article regarding one of my favorite subjects.  Great to see Archipeppe's beautiful illustrations included (had not seen these versions of Big G previously). 

Well done, Sir.

Thank you for the words of appreciation.

All the submissions I've seen and redrawn for what became the F7F have dates from 1941, so probably not.  Even the XF5F/Model G-34 dates from June, 1938.

Do you happen to have a 3-view of it? Looks like something I'd like to redraw.

Just to be clear: most, if not all, of these were declassified many years ago. It's just that they were only available at the National Archives location in College Park, Maryland.

Thanks for noting that, although majority (if not all) of translated manuals were actually declassified only a few years ago.
I recently found this May 1937 Vought drawing for a two engine fighter V-155A.
Is it possible this was a submission for this same competition?
