    L-136 enlarged version of CONSTELLATION, project @1944
    L-137twin engine bombardment airplane proposal
    L-145commercial transport proposal, DC-3 replacements
    L-147small commercial transport proposals
    L-149appears in some sources for the CONSTELLATION, a probable confusion with the Model 149.
    L-151unbuilt airliner project [not as reported, PTV-A-1 ramjet test vehicle (later X-7)]
    L-152medium size turboprop or turbojet commercial transport proposals

    L-179jet-engined commercial transport proposals
    L-182 projected ASW version of CONSTITUTION
    L-183USN Specification OS-113 (became XF3H-1), interceptor fighter proposals
    L-185commmercial transport proposals, "DC-3 replacement"
    L-185 pre-U-2 high-altitude project?

    L-189"A specific aircraft was not designed in this preliminary study for ONR, which was a generalized data generation program for carrier based ASW aircraft to be operational in 1956.
    L-190USAF interceptor proposals
    L-191strategic turbojet engine bomber system; a system called "team bombing." Team bombing was to be use of two aircraft-one was to be a manned guide aircraft and the other a remotely controlled bomb carrier that would fly only to the target and then be expendable.
