The Eberhart XFG was an American single-seat experimental ship-borne fighter developed for the United States Navy in 1927.

Development

The Eberhart Aeroplane and Motor Company produced its first original plane in 1927—the XFG—as a shipboard fighter for the U.S. Navy. It was of welded steel tube and dural construction with fabric skinning. An unusual feature was the application of sweepback to the upper mainplane and forward sweep to the lower.

Operational history

The sole XFG-1 prototype was tested by the United States Navy in late 1927, and was returned to Eberhart, where it was reconstructed as the Eberhart F2G.
