Development

Entwicklung

The Curtiss 70 was a parasol winged fighter which had an optional lower wing. On 23 November 1932 the US Navy ordered a single aircraft as XF13C-1 and with serial 9343. At that time it was fitted with as a monoplane and had a XR-1510-A2 engine.

In December 1933 the aircraft first flew as a biplane, carrying the designation XF13C-2. It was found to be inferior in performance. Subsequently the aircraft was reconverted to a monoplane with the designation XF-13C-1 and flew as such for the first time on 7 January 1934. In February 1935 it was fitted with a XR-1510-12 engine, redesignated as XF13C-3. Eventually it was scrapped in 1938.
