Airplane Grumman Wildcat

Grumman Wildcat

Short, fat and deadly The combination of ruggedness and relatively poor performance compared to the Japanese Zeros turned this aircraft into a guerilla fighter: hit hard and run fast worked so well that the Wildcat had an air combat kill-to-loss ratio of 5.9:1 in 1942 and 6.9:1 for the entire war.
