GRUMMAN F6F HELLCAT  In 1943 the Hellcat began to replace the U.S. Navy's Grumman Wildcats as the main carrier-based fighter. The Hellcat was specifically designed to counter the Japanese Zero's strong points and take advantage of its weak points. It scored more victories than the Vought Corsair (more than 5000 to the Corsair's 2000+), despite the fact that it saw combat six months after the Corsair did.
