According to Bernard Millot's list, Vought's proposal for P/A VI was V-353, not V-349:

V-349 1945 unmanned supersonic aircraft design
V-353 1946 unmanned concept (Model P/A VI)
V-355 1946 unmanned concept (Model P/A XIV)
V-357 1947 unmanned subsonic design

Didn't V-353 (P/A-VI) become the XSSM-N-8 Regulus?

The Regulus (V-357) inherited know how and technology from the experimental V-353
