      In 1940 the British Purchasing mission placed an order for 700 Vengeance dive-bombers which were built by Northrop (Vengeance Mk.I) and Vultee (Vengeance Mk.II). A further 300 were ordered in 1941 under Lend-Lease (Vengeance Mk.IA from Northrop and Vengeance Mk.III from Vultee) but 243 of these were commandeered by the USAAF when the U.S. entered the war.

      With improved armament and equipment Vultee later built 99 A35A and 831 A35Bs of which 562 were supplied to the UK as the Vengeance Mk.IV

      The Vengeance was considered unsuitable for use is Europe, but enjoyed considerable success when employed in support of Allied forces in Burma.
