Grumman F6F Hellcat

The F6F Hellcat was designed as a replacement for the F4F Wildcat. Using lessons learned from previous carrier-based fighters, the Hellcat was developed quickly. More armor plating was added to the airplane as well as a bigger ammunition load than the Wildcat. The Hellcat carried 6 .50 caliber machine guns. This F6F is operated by the Southern California Wing of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF).
