curtissxp-17


The XP-17 comprised the airframe of the first P-1 mated to the new 480hp Wright V-1460-3 Tornado inverted inline air-cooled engine, and was intended primarily to test the power plant rather than extend the service life of the P-1 design. The conversion was undertaken by the US Army and flight testing was initiated in June 1930.
