THE GRUMMAN F6F HELLCAT (Color, 1986, 45 Minutes.)
Archival color and black and white film chronicling the history of the mighty air craft carrier fighter plane that swept the powerful and agile Japanese Zero Zen fighter plane from the Pacific skies, from its inception and design as a replacement for the outclassed F4F Wildcat through its early testing and manufacture to its employment in the Asia-Pacific theater (Australian Version).

THE GRUMMAN F6F HELLCAT (Color, 1987, 41 Minutes.)
American English version of the above.

The Grumman F6F Hellcat is an American carrier-based fighter aircraft of World War II. Designed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat and to counter the Japanese Mitsubishi A6M Zero, it was the United States Navy's dominant fighter in the second half of the Pacific War, outdueling the faster Vought F4U Corsair, which had problems with carrier landings. Powered by a 2,000 hp (1,500 kW) Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp, the same powerplant used for both the Corsair and the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) Republic P-47 Thunderbolt fighters, the F6F was an entirely new design, but it still resembled the Wildcat in many ways. Some military observers tagged the Hellcat as the "Wildcat's big brother". The F6F made its combat debut in September 1943, and was best known for its role as a rugged, well-designed carrier fighter, which was able to outperform the A6M Zero and help secure air superiority over the Pacific theater. A total of 12,275 were built in just over two years. Hellcats were credited with destroying a total of 5,223 enemy aircraft while in service with the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm. This was more than any other Allied naval aircraft. Postwar, the Hellcat was phased out of front-line service in the US, but radar-equipped F6F-5N remained in service as late as 1954 as a night fighter.
