Well, the Commonwealth CA-12 Boomerang did use a number of NA-33 parts but
it really wasn't a "version" of the North American aircraft but, rather, a
development. It had a 1200 hp Pratt & Whitney R-1830 Twin Wasp. Its
armament -- two 20mm and four 0.30 -- was pretty good but its performance
kept it from being used as an air superiority fighter, so it spent its
existence as a very successful ground-attack aircraft.
250 Boomerang's were built at Fishermen's Bend.
