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.

This was to drive two coaxial contra rotating propellers connected by two drive shafts running under the cockpit from the amidships engine.
