As I was looking for a place to add U.S. Army Air Corps Specification R-1800-D in my files, I happened on a list which I started many years ago, working from many different sources (books, mostly) and had completely forgotten about. Unless I'm mistaken, I don't think I've ever shared it before on this forum, nor have I ever seen its equivalent anywhere on the web (if I'm wrong by all means please let me know).

I've compiled it for you in PDF form and I hope it will be of interest to some of you.

Also, I'm adding a second PDF with the list of Draft Specifications that I already shared previously in this topic, and a third one with Circular Proposals.
When new allocations emerge, I will update the PDF files accordingly.

Unfortunately I still don't have a list for Requests for Proposal such as the late Steve Pace was asking for in the initial post of this thread.

Thanks. I've added these to my spreadsheet and will eventually update the PDF.
I realize I made a mistake about the Stearman in CP 39-640, which was NOT the XA-21.

Are you quite sure about the Martin 177 being submitted along with the Model 167? I haven't found a reference for this.
(I don't use the M- prefix for Martin, as the company itself didn't seem to use it)
