The Kaiser-Fleetwings A-39 was a project by Kaiser-Fleetwings in the 1942-1943 period for an attack aircraft powered by a single Pratt & Whitney R-2800 radial engines. It was to be armed with four .50 caliber machine guns and two 37 mm cannons, along with up to 3,000 pounds (1,400 kg) of bombs.[1] Some sources claim that the A-39 was intended to be a twin-engined design.[2] The A-39 was canceled before any prototypes were built.[1]
