In 1944 the society Bell put in to production a special version of the plane P-63 Kingcobra RP-63 PinBall which was used as a piloted flying target.
A new plane was totally covered with an armour from a specially treated aluminium alloy. The armour was 5-10 times thicker than in an usual P-63. The maximum thickness was in the area of the cockpit, motor and fuel tanks. All armament and a part of equipment were removed from the plane.
The first five planes PR-63A-11 were assembled in August 1944 and the first flight was made on 1st September 1944. In total 337 different modifications of RP-63 were built.
