Yea, Tigercat... great speed, awesome firepower... 2x2100HP`s, looks like it entered service in late 1944.

Tigercats were flyable in the 1946 add-on for Aces of the Pacific, back in the old days.

So far i found out that first flight took place in 1943 and it was deployed in 1944.
4 20mm + 4 50cals + up to 2000lb of bomb load, or 21"torpedo or 6 rockets... talking about ground attack hehe.

I`d take that over P-38L /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

F9F Tiger Cat. Brought in too late to see action. What a shame. It was an awsome aircraft.

I always thought it was F7F?

You are right,' said Pangloss, 'for, when man was placed in the Garden of Eden, he was placed there ut operaretur eum, to dress it and keep it; which proves that man was not born for idleness.'

It is. The F9-F is the Panther.

Panther is the straight winged version, the Cougar is the swept wing version of the F9F.

Panther was a jet, served on carriers in Korea. Tigercat is a beuat, got some serious firepower there.

I remember reading a book by Eric Brown (I think it was called "Wings of the Wierd and Wonderful" -- I got it buried somewhere), and he gave the Tigercat a very good review. He said it handled nicely, had a good top speed, and had very good carrier landing characteristics (he was evaluating it for RN service).

Unfortunately, the Tigercat came into service too late for the war, but it did fly some combat missions, mainly as a nightfighter, during Korea.

Yeah, I'd definitely like to see the F7F in FB /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Though, when it comes to aircraft, I'm an omnivore -- if you want to know which aircraft I'd like to see in FB, pick up any of those large coffee-table books on combat aircraft, turn to any plane (frontline combat aircraft, experimental prototype, second-line hack, whatever) of any nationality from the years 1939 to 1946, and picture me pointing at it emphatically with a stupid grin on my face going "OOK!"

Put in in FB and I'll fly it (and get smoked six ways 'till Sunday by anything above "Rookie" AI) /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

The F7F!!!!???? This came out only a couple of days before tha war ended! It had no use at all in the war!!

But hell!! if someone wants to make the plane, go ahead, I'll be flying it, rarely, but I will.
