The Vought V 141 NR56V was a 1936 fighter based on the purchased design of the Northrop 3A, designed by Rex Beisel and others. It first flew on 29 March 1936. It did not fare well in Army pursuit tests and was modified with a 825hp R-1535-SB engine, extensive fuselage and tail redesign, and re-designated V-143;
 
The prototype Vought V 141 was bought by the Japanese in 1937. Only one V-141 / V-143 was built. Design ideas are noted in F3U and F4U and A6M Zero.
 
In 1937 the sole model V-150 was built. It was a V-143 with a 525hp P&W Wasp Junior engine.
