Alexander Kartveli, chief designer of the Seversky Aircraft Corporation, and Major Alexander P. de Seversky decided to offer the SEV-2XP monoplane as the organisation's response despite the fact that it had been designed as a private-venture fighter of the two-seat type and the requirement demanded single-seat accommodation: even so, de Seversky believed that the company's two-seater would be capable of outperforming any single-seat fighter likely to be entered in the USAAC's competition. The SEV-2XP had been designed and built with great speed on the basis of the SEV-3 three-seat civil monoplane, and first flew in the spring of 1935. Success in the competition was important to most aspiring US aircraft manufacturers as this important prototype competition that was universally thought to offer the probability of large-scale production contracts for the winner, and established the basic design concept (a very substantial fuselage and a semi-elliptical wing) which Kartveli was to pursue for most of his piston-engined fighters for Seversky and its successor, the Republic Aircraft Corporation.

However, due to financial difficulties the Seversky Aircraft Corporation was reorganized, and the name was changed to Republic Aviation Corporation, but Seversky's chief engineer and the designer of the P-35, Alexander Kartveli, remained.

...
The Republic design team, under Kartveli, proposed a new radial-engine design with eight 50 cal. guns and a weight nearly twice that of the earlier design. The Army issued a revision to its original XP-47 contract based on Kartveli's proposed changes and ordered 171 P-47B and 602 P-47C fighters.

But time would prove the wisdom of Kartveli's design and the Thunderbolt became one of the legendary fighters of World War II.
