Grumman F6F Hellcat - Part I
The Grumman F6F Hellcat was a US carrier fighter during WW2. It was introduced in 1943 to replace the Wildcat and first saw combat that year against Japanese fighters and bombers.

The Hellcat became US Navy's standard fighter, and although lacking in speed compared to the Corsair, it was durable and successful, and was also used by Britain, France, and Uruguay.

The Hellcat was armed with 6 x 0.5 inch machine guns and could carry up to 2,000 lb of bombs or rockets.
