I have a copy of the book American Secret Projects: Bombers, Attack, and Anti-Submarine Aircraft 1945-1974 and I should clarify that the requirement for the light bomber for which Curtiss, Douglas, North American, and Convair designs were devised was conceived after World War II, and thus a different operational requirement than the one that the XA-43, XA-44, and XA-45 were designed for.Hi All!
USAAF Attack/light bomber competition:
1) Convair Model ?
2) Curtiss Wright Model P-517 and P-518 (or P-517and P-517A, or P-517, P-517A and P-518)
3) Douglas Model 1018
4) Martin Model 234------------------------XA-45
5) North American Model RD-1401
You are right my brother pometablava.
What can we say about this?
