Grumman F6F Hellcat: Volume 1


by: Tomasz Szlagor, Leszek A. Wieliczko
Grumman F6F Hellcat was one of the best fighter aircraft of the World War Two era and the most effective fighter of the US Navy. There is no doubt that Hellcats won complete air superiority for the Americans over the vast areas of the Pacific, largely contributing to the victory over Japan. Volume One presents this legendary fighter in its first year of operational service – from the combat debut over Marcus Island and the Solomons in August 1943 until the end of the Marianas operation in late summer 1944.

Warpaint Series No. 84 - Grumman F6F Hellcat


by: Charles Stafrace
60 pages. Illustrated with full color artwork and profiles, detailed scale drawings and more than 140 photographs. Even before Pearl Harbor the US Navy realized that it would be hard for its existing fighters to deal with Japan's A6M Zero. The situation was such that in June 1941 the US Navy placed orders with Grumman's 'Iron Works' for the F6F Hellcat before the first prototype had even flown. It was the right decision - the new fighter, although much larger and heavier than the Zero, proved to be the latter's nemesis, so that the American fighter's better fire-power, sturdiness, range and speed more than matched the Zero's agility.
