ENGINEERING of the Airocobra fighter proceeded from the conviction of the Bell Aircraft Co., of Buffalo, N.Y., at the time of its organization in 1935, that a superior interceptor must combine the highest attainable speed with utmost destructive fire power, and therefore would have to be different from any then produced by‐established aircraft companies in the United States.
