F6F Hellcat - Lessons learned in combat led to the development of the Hellcat. It was larger, faster, more maneuverable, more heavily armed, and its rugged construction allowed it to take considerable battle damage and continue to fly. Almost 75% of the U.S. Navy's air-to-air combat victories were credited to the Hellcat, with over 5000 enemy planes destroyed. The F6F-5 is powered by a 2000 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800-10W engine with water injection. It was capable of a maximum speed of 380 mph at 23,500 ft. It was armed with either six 0.50 in guns or two 20 mm cannon and four .50 in guns. Up to 2000 lbs of bombs could be carried on the center section along with 6 rockets on wing stations. Over 7000 F6F-5s were produced. This F6F-5 is owned by The Air Museum Planes of Fame in Chino, CA.
