In 1943 a United States Army Air Force (USAAF) General stated that the Vengeance was "a shining example of waste of material, manpower, and time.
Britain started to receive deliveries of the V-72 in late 1942. It was found that the Vengeances would be easy targets for Axis fighters so it was decided to send them to India and Burma. They were used in Burma from March 1943 to June 1944.
Great Britain received a total of 1,205 Vengeances.
The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) had five squadrons equipped with Vengeances operating in New Guinea. After it was discovered the Vengeance was unstable they were converted to communication and target tug aircraft.
The USAAF received 99 A-35s and 224 / 243 of the Vengeance Mk IIs that were diverted from Britain's order. These too eventually became target tugs.
These were soon relegated to utilitarian duties as the P-47 and A-36 were coming available.
