Overview

The Curtiss XP-62 is a prototype single-engine fighter aircraft developed during the Second World War. On 25 May 1942, a contract for 100 P-62 fighters was awarded but was terminated on 27 July 1942, as it would affect deliveries of Curtiss-built Republic P-47 Thunderbolts. The design was slowly worked on until it was eventually cancelled on 21 September 1943.

Armament was not installed on the prototype, initially twelve 12.7mm machine guns or eight 20mm cannons were proposed, however this was later finalized as four 20mm cannons.
