The Eberhart XF2G was an American single-seat experimental ship-borne fighter developed for the United States Navy in 1928. It was a refit of the Eberhart FG after the Navy returned it in late 1927.
The F2G was essentially an improved FG. It had a new system of floats, both central and side-on, as well as a new 400 hp (300 kW) Pratt & Whitney R-1340-D engine.
The XF2G-1 prototype was sent back to the Navy for testing at Anacostia in January 1928, but in March 1928 the plane crashed during trials. No further production ensued.
