Corsair F4-1

With a crew of 1, the Corsair was a carrier-capable fighter aircraft, primarily used in WWII and the Korean War. The U.S. Navy didn't designate it for use until September 1943. Corsairs served with the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, Fleet Air Arm and the Royal New Zealand Air Force, as well the French Navy Aeronavale and other services postwar. It quickly became the most capable carrier-based fighter-bomber of World War II.

It had one of the biggest engines of its time, a 2,000 hp (1,500 kW) 18-cylinder engine and could reach a maximum speed of 425mph. Close to the end of the war demand for the airplane grew because of its considerable capabilities and production was not only with Vought but Brewster and Goodyear as well. Eventually, more than 12,500 F4Us would be built, comprising 16 separate variants. Some of the Corsair's notable successes was with combat against the Kamikaze and at the Battle of Okinawa.
