What If Naval Aircraft
I have made some modifications to MechCommander’s list of USN “what-if” aircraft. Most of the changes are additions. Then I applies the following limitations:
- The aircraft must have existed at least as a design proposal. No “back of the napkin” designs and no after-the-fact hypotheticals. For example, I have some beautiful illustrations of the Hughes XBTH-1 Hornet. Unfortunately, they are only photoshops of an XF-11 nacelle, shortened and with bubble canopy added.
- The aircraft must not have entered active service. For example, only a few of the Martin AM Mauler entered service, but they did serve at the squadron level for several years.
- I am not including aircraft that are very similar to contemporary aircraft that had significant careers. For example, the Brewster SB2A Buccaneer was similar to the Curtiss SB2C but not as good and later in development.

Since I came up with a larger number of aircraft, I am sub-dividing the content.

WWII USN “what if” dive bomber types:
- Curtiss XSB3C-1: improved SB2C Helldiver.
- Douglas XSB2D-1: 2-place scout bomber with power turrets top and bottom.
- Kaiser/Fleetwing XBK-1 and XBTK-1: promising attack types, but technical problems delayed production until Douglas Skyraider was already in service.

WWII USN “what-if torpedo bomber types:
- Consolidated TBY-2 Sea Wolf: judged superior to the Grumman TBF Avenger, but production delayed by prototype crash and overload at Consolidated factory.
- Curtiss XBTC-1: promising attack type, but end of war limited production opportunities and there were too many competitors.
- Curtiss XBT2C-1: see XBTC-1
- Douglas BTD-1 Destroyer: modification of the XSB2D-1 with second crewman and power turrets removed. This raised speed and allowed carrying a torpedo.
- Douglas XBTD-2: modification of the XSB2D with jet engine replacing second crewman and power turrets. Even faster than the BTD-1.
- Douglas XBT2D-1 Skypirate: massive and powerful aircraft, but late in the war the Navy was more interested in single-seat attack types.
- Grumman XTB3F-1: R2800 in the nose, jet in the tail. Post-war this became the AF Guardian without jet and with anti-submarine equipment.

WWII USN “what if” patrol types
- Boeing XPBB-1 Sea Ranger: a large twin-engine seaplane. The B-29 had priority for the engines, so only the prototype was completed. During flight testing, it was commonly referred to as the “Lone Ranger.”
- Consolidated XP4Y Corregidor: a large twin-engine seaplane. Ordered into production, but the B-29 had priority for the engines, so the order was cancelled.

WWII USN “what-if” fighter types:
- Boeing XF8B-1 ‘Five-in-One”: Massive powerplant in very large airframe. Probably would have made a good attack type. Turbojet types made this too late as a fighter.
- Curtiss XF14C-2: This aircraft was powerful but too bulky and troublesome.
- Goodyear XF2G-2 “Super Corsair”: Vought Corsair with R-4360 engine and bubble canopy. Grumman F8F Bearcat developed at same time was favored by the Navy.
- Grumman XF5F-1 Skyrocket: Twin-engine, single-place fighter. Unlike most other aircraft in this list, this is an early-war type, first flying in 1940.
- Ryan FR-1 Fireball: small radial engine in nose + turbojet in tail. Almost ready as an anti-kamikaze interceptor when the war ended.
- Vought XF5U-1 “Flying Flapjack”: One of the greatest “what-if” aircraft. Almost unique aerodynamic shape.

Early Cold War USN “what-if” attack and patrol types:
- Douglas XA2D-1 Skyshark: enlarged AD Skyraider with turboprop engine. The powerplant never worked as well as planned.
- Martin P6M-2 Seamaster: turbojet flying boat.
- North American XA2J Super Savage: enlarged AJ Savage with turboprop engines. The powerplant never worked as well as planned.

Early Cold War USN “what-if” fighter types:
- Douglas XF5D Skylancer: an advanced version of the F4D Skyray, but the Navy selected the Chance-Vought F8U Crusader.
- Chance-Vought XF8U-3 Crusader III: an advanced version of the F8U Crusader. A better fighter than the McDonnell F4H Phantom II, the Navy preferred the multi-role capability of the F4H.
- Convair XFY Pogo: turboprop tail sitter. The problem of landing while facing upwards was never solved.
- Convair F2Y Seadart: only supersonic seaplane to ever fly. Too many technical problems and Navy had learned to operate supersonic aircraft from carriers.
- Grumman XF10F Jaguar: an early variable-geometry design. Although the swing-wing worked, there were too many other technical issues.
- Grumman G118 design (unofficially XF12F): about half-way between the XF8U-3 Crusader III and the F4H Phantom II.
- Lockheed XFV “Salmon”: turboprop tail sitter. The problem of landing while facing upwards was never solved.
- Ryan X-13 Vertijet: turbojet tail sitter. This did successfully take off and land on jet thrust but was a purely experimental type with no combat capability.

Somewhat visually different with 6 road wheels vice the 7 of earlier M109s, looks like they are from a Bradley and it uses Bradley tracks as well. Other improvements are inside.

The Royal Italian Army could use the Fiat 626 truck. They were used on all fronts and very common.
