ESM F-6F HELLCAT , Own a piece of US NAVY’s finest AIRCRAFT of WWII…
F-6F HELLCAT The F-6F Hellcat was the successor to the famous F-4F WildCat. Grumman’s Hellcat was a completely different aircraft starting with it’s Pratt and Whitney R-2800. This Radial engine put out 2000 hp (the Wildcat’s engine put out 1200 hp), and with many new design features and armament this with the highly trained Naval Pilots yielded one of the most successful military aircraft of all time! The Hellcats went on to score 5200 kills, most of which occurred in the pacific theatre (though 8 kills were recorded during the invasion of southern France).
This model is based on an aircraft from VF-27, operating from the USS Princeton in October 1944 during the Great Marianas Turkey Shoot. It was flown by Richard Stambook, who claimed 10 kills in his F6F-3 Hellcat.
