Very unique, Paul.  By the way, I should be getting back to the Pacific with some of my upcoming profiles, so you'll have that to look forward to!

Cheers,

Logan

Due to shortage of material Vought delivered F3UL's to the USAAC and the USMC to fight the Japanese in the Pacific. Here is one from USAAC from 11th FS at the Aloutians and one from VMF-121 on Henderson Field Guadalcanal.

I have greatly enjoyed watching the evolution of the F3U.  I was wondering if you had considerd fitting it with an in-line engine like the Merlin.  If possible, could you please let us see your vision of a Merlin powered F3U?

Best regards,

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the compliment. I have made two visions of the merlin F3U. Tried first with the F3UL with the corsair-tail but that was not a very good sight, so i went back tot the basic one the A-23 and made two USAAF machines from the 4th FS and 362th FS. They were delivered by Vought in 1943 and tested well. So the European squadrons were supplied.

regards
Lauhof

Thank you all!

The A-23C, built by Vought and Lavochkin was also used by the Russians. Here is one from 159th IAP and one who was captured by the Fins.

Might there not be inline-engine developments with other than Merlins?  I'm thinking that the Russians might be interested in using locally produced engines.

The F3UL in Russian service was a hit! They started mass-production with Yakovlev and Ilyushin. Here are two A-23 built by their factories.
