UO-1

Subsequent development of the VE-7 and VE-9 resulted in the UO which had an airframe basically similar to that of the VE series but with some refinements (the most noticeable being the revised vertical tail surfaces) and which was powered initially by the 149kW Lawrence J-1 or J-3, later by Wright J-1 or J-3 radial engine, and from 1927 many were re-engined with the 164kW Wright J-5. Final development brought an order for 20 UO-3 single-seat catapult-launched floatplane fighters, but before delivery these were redesignated FU-1.
