The first production F6F-3 took to the air in Oct.
1942, and by Jan. 16, 1943, operational F6F-3’s were being delivered to the U.S.
Navy. More than 2500 joined the naval service in 1944 with production of the “3’s”
coming to a halt in the spring of 1944 when an
improved version, the F6F-5 began to roll down the assembly lines. Form its first
combat engagement, the Hellcat proved superior to its Japanese opponent and maintained
this advantage right up to the end of the hostilities. Largely remembered for
its exploits during the war in the Pacific, Hellcats served aboard the following
as well as other carriers of the U.S. Pacific Fleet- Yorktown, Essex, Enterprise,
Hornet, Lexington, Ticonderoga and Intrepid. Notable combat engagements occurred
over Marcus Island, Wake Island, Tarawa, and the Marianas.
