Was the XSB3U-1 a variant of the F3U? I have removed the link until this is confirmed. Drutt (talk) 13:23, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Number built[edit]

The number built has been corrected to 244 which includes 24 for the French can I just note that I have a ref that 40 were built for the French, the 24 were the ones that entered service, that would make it 260 built. Anybody have any other sources for the French build number, thanks. MilborneOne (talk) 18:49, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

I have two sources (the Air Enthusiast article used already and a 2000 article in the same magazine that state that not only were all 40 French V-156Fs were built, but all 40 were delivered as well, the first 20 in 1939 and the second 20 in early 1940.Nigel Ish (talk) 19:32, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Thanks Nigel I have updated the page to 260 and tweaked the French total. MilborneOne (talk) 19:36, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
