Part of this serial number batch appears to have included some of a group of ten YR-13 Model 47As transferred from US Army. Army serials were 46-236,237,242,243,244,249,250,251,253,254.

However the serials 122453/122458 were subsequently reassigned to the P2V Neptune batch, and the serials of these six helicopters were transferred to the 122952/122963 batch.
