Did the Mauler share some lineage with the Skyraider?

I've never seen this aircraft...reminds me of a P-47, AD-1, and smidge of corsair / Avenger wing.

The 3 torpedo load out, flying ASW from HMCS Magnificent in EDSG/DSG.

It was a direct competitor to being part of the same competition that included the Curtiss XBTC, Douglas XBT2D Skyraider and Kaiser-Fleetwings BTK.

Some Maulers were issued to navy or marine reserves as I recall.

For those wanting a challenge, the Martin JR2M "Mercury", a COD version of the Mauler.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

The Mauler is apparently the old Siga kit with new bits.
