It Made Its Mark!

The Wildcat, be it the original F2F or later FM-2, in either case, the Wildcat was an important aircraft of WWII. It started the war behind the eight ball, underpowered and gunned against the formidable Zeke. But the brave pilots of the US Navy figured how to work with its strengths to make it a player until the end of the war. At the end, it was the main aircraft flying CAP protecting the fleet during their last battles.
