Fisher P-75A Eagle

Peregrine Publishing

P-75A starboard rear portrait

The Fisher P-75 was originally intended to fulfil a 1942 need for a fast climbing, heavily armed interceptor with a top speed of 440mph at 20,000ft and an initial 5,600ft/min rate of climb. To speed design, construction and testing it was to utilize proven parts from other fighter designs, including P-51 outer wing panels, SBD tail assemblies and F4U landing gear. The power plant was to be the new twenty four cylinder, 2,800hp Allison V3420-19, essentially two V1710 engines. This was to drive two coaxial contra rotating propellers connected by two drive shafts running under the cockpit from the amidships engine.
