This peculiar shape of the fuselage of this aircraft stemmed from the fact tat it was designed to float in case it came down in the sea. Also, in order to enable the airplane to take up less space on an aircraft carrier, the fuselage was designed to fold, rather than the wings, as was to become the more usual procedure with later carrier-based aircraft.
