Restock: F4U Corsair – WWII Carrier-Based Fighter-Bomber
About the F4U Corsair – WWII Carrier-Based Fighter-Bomber:
A legend of World War II, the F4U Corsair saw significant combat in the Pacific Theater after 1943. This carrier-based fighter-bomber boasted an impressive kill ratio of 11:1 against Japanese fighters such as the Zero. Its bomber capabilities helped support major operations at the Marshall Islands, Okinawa, and Iwo Jima by performing dive-bomb strikes against fortified Japanese positions. The story is that the Japanese referred to the warplane as “Whistling Death” for the noise it made as it dove for an attack run.
