The XP-77 was an unsuccesful attempt to built an extremely light-weight fighter of
non-strategic materials. Performance was far below expectations, partly because the
planned supercharged version of the V-770 engine was not available. The completion of the
first aircraft took nearly two years by which time the aircraft was no longer needed.
However, two aircraft were completed for test purposes in 1944. Finally there was no
shortage of aluminium, and better fighters were already in service.
