                    MARINE CORPS AIRCRAFT FROM 1913 to 1965


I - Introduction

                                  THE RECORD

     The pace of Marine Corps Aviation since 1913 parallels the speed of 
present day aircraft.  From the AX-1, the first airplane flown by Marines, to 
the F-4B, the newest high performance Jet, from subsonic to supersonic 
aircraft, the Marines have been assigned over 430 different models.

     Quasi-official records credit Marine pilots with having flown aircraft in 
assignments such as air races, tests, or special duty.  These aircraft do not 
appear in official status of aircraft reports issued by the Bureau of 
Aeronautics, the Chief of Naval Operations, or by the Commandant of the Marine 
Corps.  The aircraft listed in this compilation are taken from official 
records of aircraft assigned to Marine Aviation.

     The chronological list of aircraft used by Marine Aviation for the period 
1913-1965 lists the designation, type, year, manufacturer, common name, engine 
type, horsepower, and dimensions.  The omission of a year in the master 
chronology indicates that no new types were received within that year.  The 
inclusive dates within which models of particular aircraft were used is not 
shown.

     
                    DESIGNATING AIRCRAFT: THE LETTER SYSTEM

     In the early phase of Marine Corps Aviation there was no precise method 
of designating aircraft.  Planes were assigned letters and numbers at random 
which neither clarified the type of plane nor identified its manufacturer.  An 
example in point is the B3-2L, a patrol flying boat manufactured by Curtiss; 
Lowe, Willard, and Fowler; and others.  The designation used then did not 
reveal the type of aircraft or its manufacturer.

     By 1922 a lettering system was devised whereby the first letter indicated 
the manufacturer, the second letter the type of plane, and a number appended 
which stood for the modification of the aircraft, e.g.: a UO-1 was a (U) 
Vought, (O) Observation plane, and (-1) the first modification (not to be 
confused with the UO-1 assigned in 1960, a twin-engined Piper Aztec, the (U) 
in this case stands for utility, the (O) for Piper). A number inserted between 
the manufacturer and type stood for the order or model number of the 
designer's aircraft in the same class, (the first design numeral "1" is always 
omitted), e.g.: U2O-1 indicates this designation was a Vought, (2) - second 
model of its class, (O) - Observation


                                      1



plane, (1) - first modification.

     In 1923 the system was revised so that the manufacturer's and type 
letters were reversed.  The numbering system remained the same.  This system 
is virtually the same today except that suffixes have been added when aircraft 
have been equipped for special missions or have peculiar modifications, e.g.: 
an F7F-2P indicates the aircraft is a (F) - Fighter, (7) - seventh model of 
its class, by (F) - Grumman, (2) - second modification, equipped for (P) - 
photographic missions.  A suffix letter indicates that modifications are of a 
permanent nature and limit or augment the primary mission.  (Also see Appendix 
2.)

     In 1962 the Defense Department instituted another change in the system in 
order to establish an armed forces wide method of identifying service 
aircraft.  The new system is substantially the same as that used by the United 
States Air Force since the 1920's but modified to reflect current needs. The 
new rationale is outlined in Appendix 3.  The changes required by the new 
procedure are reflected in the dual identifiers scattered through the list 
beginning at entry 194.  The plural designations are assigned to those 
aircraft either on hand or programmed at the time of the change.


                              MANUFACTURERS CODE

     Prior to the 1922-1923 identification system there was no code letter to 
determine the manufacturer's name.  Some aircraft were fabricated by more than 
one company, e.g.: H-16, RS, F-6-L, JN, DH, and VE.  As late as 1925 the 
Marines were assigned aircraft which were lettered and numbered by the old 
method.  (See Index III for manufacturer's list.) The omission of a letter 
from the manufacturer's identification list indicates no letter was assigned 
to the manufacturer at the time the Marines received the aircraft.  The year 
shown opposite the manufacturer's symbols list indicates the first year that 
particular manufacturer appeared in the designation of aircraft assigned to 
the Marines.  (See Index 4 for code names.)


                              AIRCRAFT CODE NAMES

     Before 1942, names given to aircraft were assigned by the aircraft 
manufacturer and had no official sanction or significance.  After 1942, with 
the exception of helicopters, such names appear consistently, are approved by 
the armed forces and are employed for identification purposes.  Quite often 
the names help identify the manufacturer.  For example, Grumman aircraft are 
the "Cat" series - Wildcat, Hellcat, Tigercat, Panther, Cougar.  The Chance 
Vought aircraft bear the names of pirates such as Corsair, Buccaneer, Cutlass, 
and Douglas Aircraft Company leans toward the Sky series - Skytrain, 
Skyraider, Skyhawk, Skyknight, and Skymaster.

                                   SEAPLANES

     The term - convertible - used under type aircraft indicates that the 
standard landing gear may be removed and be replaced with floats for 
utilization aboard battleships or cruisers.

     The essential difference between seaplanes is in the fuselage itself.  
Seaplane is the generic term under which various categories of flying boats, 
float planes, and outriggers are placed.  The flying boat is basically a 
seaplane with a boat hull fuselage.  The float plane type has a main float 
attached to the fuselage by struts and an outrigger float under each wing.  
Some seaplane types had two floats and no outriggers for buoyancy.  The 
Grumman "Duck" (see number 111) had its main float joined to the fuselage and 
was a boat hulled seaplane.


                                    ENGINES

     Engines used in Marine aircraft range from the Curtiss in-line 90 hp used 
in the early period to the high thrust Jets with afterburner.  The letter 
preceding the engine describes the type engine used: R - radial, O - opposed, 
H - two rows of over and under cylinders, L-in-line, V-angled, opposing 
cylinders, and J-Jet.

     The radials which predominate throughout the 48 year period run in series 
from the 5 cylinder Kinners to the 28 cylinder Pratt & Whitney R-4360's.

     The number after the engine letter refers to the cubic displacement of 
cylinders and not to horsepower (i.e., - R-2800).The number and letter code 
after cubic displacement usually indicates a modification such as attached 
cooling fins, water injection, or other refinement, (i.e., - R-2800-32W). In 
the case of Jet engines, the number is assigned by sequence and does not 
indicate thrust or power, it serves only as identification for that specific 
engine.

     Modifications of some aircraft engines made them interchangeable.  To 
resolve conflict during the course of research the manufacturers 
specifications are used.

     The dimensions as listed have been rounded off to the nearest whole 
number for simplification.


                  GLIDERS, DRONES, BLIMPS, AND FREE BALLOONS

     Gliders, drones, blimps, and free balloons have not been tabulated in 
this compilation.  The mission and service tour of these craft was tangential 
to the primary mission of Marine Aviation.


                                      3



     In 1918 the Caquot "M" Kite, a 2-crew observation balloon, was borrowed 
from the British government and used briefly for training during World War I.

     Between 1942-43, the Marine Corps experimented with gliders in the 
earliest developmental stages of vertical envelopment.  The LNE-1, a training 
glider, by Gould, the LN3-1, a training glider by Schweitzer, and the LRW-1, a 
transport glider by Waco, had brief utilization before the glider program was 
dropped.  The use of gliders during war-time was predicated on having a 
sanitized landing zone with sufficient landing room.  In the Pacific War such 
areas were nonexistent.

     Another short-lived, but intermittent program between 1943-45 employed 
drones such as the TDC-2, a target drone by Culver, the TDN-1, an assault 
drone by Brunswick-Balke-Collender, and the TD3R-1, an assault drone by 
Interstate.

     The ZP2K and the ZTG patrol and training airships, by Goodyear were 
assigned to Marine Corps Air Facility, Santa Ana, California, in 1953.  
However, records indicate they were primarily used for salvage and not for 
flight training.

The AX-1 was one of the first two aircraft purchased from Curtiss in 1911 for 
the navy. Originally it was a land plane designated A-2.  Shortly after its 
acquisition it was equipped to operate from the water.  Later the A-2 was 
converted at the Curtiss factory to operate over water and over land from 
which capabilities it received the name OWL.  After this conversion the A-2 
was redesignated E-1 on 22 September 1913.  When the system of aircraft 
designation was changed by General Order No. 88 dated 27 March 1914 the E-1 
became the AX-1.

                                  Appendix 2

              AIRCRAFT LETTER AND NUMBER SYSTEM OF IDENTIFICATION

Marine aircraft were identified by the following letter-number system 
introduced in 1923 and in effect until 6 July 1962 when it was superceded by 
the system outlined in Appendix 3.

     The first letter indicates the type of plane, the second the manufacturer 
with a number appended standing for the modification of the aircraft, e.g., an 
FF-2 is identified as a (F) fighter, by (F) Grumman, (2) second modification.  
A number inserted between type and manufacturer's letters indicates the model 
number of the designer's aircraft in the same class (the first model or design 
number "1" is always omitted), e.g., an F6C-1 is identified as a (f) fighter, 
(6) sixth model, by (C) Curtiss, (1) first modification.

     Suffixes have had to be added when aircraft have been equipped for 
special missions or have certain modifications, e.g., an SBD-4P is defined as 
a (SB) scout-bomber by (D) Douglas, (4) fourth modification, equipped for (P) 
photography.
