Joe Baugher writes on his site, joebaugher.com, about the Brewster XF2A-1,
" The Model B-139 stemmed from an earlier design study for a two-seat fighter based on the XSBA."

Who knows more about this project?

hesham is speculating about Brewster's (currently unknown) P-1 and P-2 projects which predate the known P-3 aka Brewster B-139 or XF2A-1.

https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,7780.msg67930.html

After designing the Brewster B-138 aka XSBA-1, Dayton Brown sketched out a 2-seat fighter version followed by a refined single-seater fitted with "a semi-bubble canopy". That second concept formed the basis for the B-139.

For sofar I found was the Xsba-1 there first design and the b-139 was based on the xsba-1.
The b-139 was the p-3.
If the information about the two-seat fighter is correct than I have the following conclusion.
P-1. xsba-1
P-2. Two-seat fighter
P-3. B-139 or xf2a

I was written that Joe Baugher mentioned that: B-139 stemmed from an earlier design study for a two-seat fighter based on the XSBA.
I found in "The last Great Buffalo hunt, by G.J. Villard, on page 31 a reprint of a 1939 Brewster Company Brochure, which mentioned: , this Brewster Scout Bomber can also be equipped for export sale as a two-seat Fighter or Attack Plane with variations armament and equipment.
There is shown a picture of the XSBA-1.
This proved that the two-seat fighter was NOT a new study, but an excistent type wich could be equiped for a special version.
