Brunswick-Balke-Collender OQ-4

The designation OQ-4 was allocated to a small target drone to be built by Brunswick-Balke-Collender. Brunswick was a non-aviation company which committed some of its resources to small aircraft production during World War II. The OQ-4 would have been similar to the Radioplane OQ-2A with a wingspan of about 3.6 m (12 ft). However, although a few prototypes might have been built, the OQ-4 was not put into production, probably because Radioplane and Frankfort could produce enough targets (OQ-2/-3/-14 series) so that another production line was not necessary.


I have no further details on the configuration of the OQ-4.
