Berliner-Joyce XF3J-1

Designed by the US Navy Bureau of Aeronautics, turned over to the Berliner-Joyce Corporation for development and construction and ordered on 30 June 1932, the XF3J-1 experimental single-seat shipboard fighter was completed in January 1934. Of all-metal construction with a semi-monocoque fuselage and fabric-covered wings, the XF3J-1 was powered by a 625hp Wright XR-1510-26 radial and carried an armament of two 7.62mm synchronised machine guns. Provision was made for two 50kg bombs beneath the wings. Although offering a good performance, the XF3J-1 was surpassed by the Grumman XF2F-1, and no further development was undertaken.
