Just prior to the outbreak of American involvement in World War II, the U.S.
Navy, having heard reports of a superb fighter produced by the Japanese,
realized that the current Navy fighters, the F4F Wildcat and theF2A Buffalo,
were close to, if not already, obsolete. Grumman Aircraft won a contract to
produce a fighter that would match the performance of the fighters produced by
the Axis powers. The F6F was the result. By January 1943 the Navy was receiving
a steady supply of Hellcats, quickly proving the design while pressing the
airplanes into service fighting the many sea battles of the Pacific. Although
unable the match the Zero’s turning abilities, the Hellcat pilots learned to use
the airplane’s greater horsepower, speed, and firepower to win air battles.
