COBI-5731 F4F Wildcat


The Grumman F4F Wildcat is a WWII US Navy carrier-based fighter built at Grumman’s factory. When the USA entered the war in 1941, the Wildcats were the basic carrier-based fighters of the US Navy, and they gradually displaced older machines from the base squadrons. Wildcats were the only fighter protection of the US fleet and carrier aviation. In the Pacific, the main opponent of the Wildcats were the Japanese Navy Mitsubishi A6M fighters, popularly known as “Zero”.
This aircraft developed by COBI received the historic colors of the pilot who became the first fighter ace of the US Navy! Particularly noteworthy are such historical details as the emblem with the cat Felix and the number of victories placed by the cockpit.
