Oops ! you have right ! :-[Apophenia said:airman,
The Fairey P4/34 submission wasn't a direct development of the Battle, it was an entirely new design. Spec P4/34 was for a light bomber/divebomber, ultimately won by the competing Hawker Henley. The Fairey P3/34 then evolved into the two-seat Fulmar naval fighter.
BTW, Orlogsværftet began licence production of the P4/34 (LVI) for the Marinens Flyvevæsen in February 1939. The 12 Danish aircraft were to be O.V.231-O.V.242 (c/n 93-104) but none were finished. The Danish P4/34s (along with 12 new Macchi C.200s) were to equip a new, land-based unit, 3.Luftflotille.
So does anyone know when, what role and service was the ‘Battle’ assessed for by the United States?
I'd be interested t see your model, as i'm doing onee on the What If? modellers web forum, http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php?topic=21075.msg299160#msg299160. ;D ;DApophenia said:Justo: amazing find. I worked up a 'what-if' twin-engined Battle but had no idea that it had been a genuine proposal.
