Curtiss-Wright SOC Seagull
Entered service in 1935. The first order was for 135 SOC-1 models, which was followed by 40 SOC-2 models for landing operations and 83 SOC-3s. A variant of the SOC-3 was built by the Naval Aircraft Factory and was known as the SON-1. By 1941, most battleships had transitioned to the Vought OS2U Kingfisher and cruisers were expected to replace their aging SOC.
The SOC-3 design was the basis of the Naval Aircraft Factory SON-1 variant. The NAF delivered 64 aircraft from 1940.
