This aircraft was an adaptation of the P-36 fighter with the liquid-cooled Allison V-1710-C7 12 cylinder engine installed. A turbo-supercharger was installed, and this aircraft achieved an impressive 340 mph at 20,000 feet in 1937. However, it suffered from frequent turbo-supercharger failures. An order for 13 service aircraft followed on December 11, 1937. The first service models delivered between April 29 1939 and December 5, 1939 were designated YP-37. All aircraft suffered from mechanical problems, and the US Army Air Force discontinued all further development.
