[18], Other prototypes in the F6F series included the XF6F-4 (02981, a conversion of the XF6F-1 powered by an R-2800-27 and armed with four 20-mm M2 cannon) which first flew on 3 October 1942 as the prototype for the projected F6F-4. :)If you liked the replay or/and the video like it and like the replay down below, if you didn't like it dislike the video.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Replay: http://replays.quickybaby.com/result.php?id=11532~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~System Specs: Intel Core i5 3570K @ 3.40GHz, 8.00GB Dual Kanal DDR3 @ 666MHz, ASRock Z77 Pro3 (CPUSocket), 2047 MBNVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 (ASUStek Computer Inc), DTV (1360x768@60Hz)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Tanks I will buy in the future:T95Object 140T62AObject 430AMX M4AMX 50 100KV-4FerdinandTanks in my Garage:AMX 13 90: http://bit.ly/1jMmIEqBat.-Châtillon 25t: http://bit.ly/1h0F6cjE-75: http://bit.ly/1bOVXQkE-100: http://bit.ly/1hyFLF5Rheinmetall-Borsig Waffenträger: http://bit.ly/1l1VVaDWaffenträger auf E100: http://bit.ly/1ffBfK7FV4202: http://bit.ly/1dS1RPtFV215b: http://bit.ly/Fv215bT26E4 Super Pershing: http://bit.ly/1ffAbWBM48 Patton: http://bit.ly/1jMohlJT32: http://bit.ly/OeDv9oT110E5: http://bit.ly/1gMoeq8M18 Hellcat: http://bit.ly/1d4THiyIS-3: http://bit.ly/NemZFaIS-7: http://bit.ly/1bpDREeVK 72.01K: http://bit.ly/1haOdG3Bat.-Châtillon 155 58: http://bit.ly/1jMnpxq Comet: http://bit.ly/1gMnNfwM24 Chaffee: http://bit.ly/1ffB1Ta~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Noobmeter: http://bit.ly/1c3PFXHMy vBaddict: http://bit.ly/1mc6VQW~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Warthunder Vehicles:Coming soon™ [13] On 22 April 1942, Lieutenant Commander Butch O'Hare toured the Grumman Aircraft company and spoke with Grumman engineers, analyzing the performance of the F4F Wildcat against the Mitsubishi A6M Zero in aerial combat. [51], FAA Hellcats, as with other Lend-Lease aircraft, were rapidly replaced by British aircraft after the end of the war, with only two of the 12 squadrons equipped with the Hellcat at VJ-Day still retaining Hellcats by the end of 1945. Even with these upgrades, it cannot win a head-on fight against most proper mediums. It was introduced in Update 1.51 "Cold Steel". This can be broken down as 5,163 in the Pacific and eight more during the invasion of Southern France, plus 52 with the, Jackson emphasized to Grumman, "you can't hit 'em if you can't see 'em".

Light Tanks ... tanks.gg is a player created website for World of Tanks. [31] The turbochargers proved to be unreliable on both engines, while performance improvements were marginal. 6 months ago. [48] The Pacific War being primarily a naval war, the FAA Hellcats primarily faced land-based aircraft in the European and Mediterranean theaters,[49][50] and as a consequence experienced far fewer opportunities for air-to-air combat than their USN/Marines counterparts, nevertheless, they claimed a total of 52 enemy aircraft kills during 18 aerial combats from May 1944 to July 1945. The A39 Tortoise is the heaviest and last of the slow and heavily armored "AT" tank destroyers in 1844 Naval Air Squadron, on board HMS Indomitable of the British Pacific Fleet was the highest scoring unit, with 32.5 kills. A total of 12,275 were built in just over two years. The aircraft was originally designed to use the Wright R-2600 Twin Cyclone two-row, 14-cylinder radial engine of 1,700 hp (1,300 kW) (the same engine used with Grumman's then-new torpedo bomber under development), driving a three-bladed Curtiss Electric propeller. Tank Destroyers AMX AC mle. A few standard F6F-5s were also fitted with camera equipment for reconnaissance duties as the F6F-5P. [32] Two XF6F-6s (70188 and 70913) were converted from F6F-5s and used the 18-cylinder 2,100 hp (1,566 kW) Pratt and Whitney R-2800-18W two-stage supercharged radial engine with water injection and driving a Hamilton-Standard four-bladed propeller. [33] The XF6F-6s were the fastest version of the Hellcat series with a top speed of 417 mph (671 km/h), but the war ended before this variant could be mass-produced.[10][34]. Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum, List of aircraft of the United States during World War II, "Fact Sheets: Kawanishi N1K2-Ja Shiden Kai. [36] In addition to its good flight qualities, the Hellcat was easy to maintain and had an airframe tough enough to withstand the rigors of routine carrier operations. ... tanks.gg is a player created website for World of Tanks. [10] The wing was mounted lower on the fuselage and was able to be hydraulically or manually folded, with each panel outboard of the undercarriage bay folding backwards from pivoting on a specially oriented, Grumman-patented "Sto-Wing" diagonal axis pivoting system much like the earlier F4F, with a folded stowage position parallel to the fuselage with the leading edges pointing diagonally down. [20] [Note 5], The F6F series was designed to take damage and get the pilot safely back to base. [35] This high production rate was credited to the sound original design, which required little modification once production was under way. World of Tanks puts you in command of over 600 war machines from the mid-20th century. Several were fitted with photographic reconnaissance equipment similar to the F6F-5P, receiving the designation Hellcat FR Mk.II. One of a few American tank destroyers manufactured on its original chassis, not on a tank chassis. Classified as a light tank at the game's release, it was reclassified as a medium tank a few months later. Спасибо. Tier VI. You really shouldn't be ramming anything in a Hellcat or other paper tanks/TDs. The engine was coupled to the new cross-drive transmission developed by General Motors. The Grumman F6F Hellcat is an American carrier-based fighter aircraft of World War II. He once described the F6F as "... an outstanding fighter plane. We are not an official Wargaming or World of Tanks website. 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. World of Tanks Supertest just received a brand new Tier VI Premium American Tank Destroyer, the T78 Gun Motor Carriage. [42], The U.S. Navy's all-time leading ace, Captain David McCampbell, scored all his 34 victories in the Hellcat. The M18 Hellcat Tank Destroyer Even before Nazi Germany’s declaration of war on America on 11 December 1941, the U.S. Army was coming to terms with the need to adapt its arsenal and operational doctrines to the evolving European battlefield. A center-section hardpoint under the fuselage could carry a single 150 US gal (570 l) disposable drop tank, while later aircraft had single bomb racks installed under each wing, inboard of the undercarriage bays; with these and the center-section hard point late model F6F-3s could carry a total bomb load in excess of 2,000 lb (910 kg). It performed well, was easy to fly, and was a stable gun platform, but what I really remember most was that it was rugged and easy to maintain. The tier 4 M8A1 is dominant, the tier 5 T67 is a statpadder's dream and the tier 6 Hellcat is still a blast to play. [17] In addition, the forward fuselage sloped down slightly to the engine cowling, affording the Hellcat's pilot good visibility. He said it's like a hotrod with a shotgun. Since M26 was designed to fight the heaviest German armour, weak mantlet proved to be a big problem.

[6][Note 2] This was more than any other Allied naval aircraft. As with the XF6F-4, 66244 was soon converted back to a standard F6F-3. Quote: "... flown by 305 aces, most of any U.S. fighter in World War II. "Grumman F6F Hellcat". It's basically an improved version of the A-20 that has more health, armor and a decent gun that has noticeably higher penetration than the A-20's stock gun. [59], A relatively large number of Grumman F6Fs survive to this day, either in museums or in flyable condition. The tank destroyer became the fastest armored vehicle, of this type, of World War II. [3] Some military observers tagged the Hellcat as the "Wildcat's big brother". The T78 was a July 1943 project to arm the Chaffee chassis with a 90mm gun in an M36 turret. A 250 US gal (950 l) self-sealing fuel tank was fitted in the fuselage. [4] The Cyclone-powered XF6F-1 (02981) first flew on 26 June 1942, followed by the first Double Wasp-equipped aircraft, the XF6F-3 (02982), which first flew on 30 July 1942. Development started in 1942. In December 1941, the Ordnance Corps issued a requirement for the design of a fast tank destroyer using a Christie suspension, the Wright/Continental R-975 engine, and a 37 mm gun.The M18 originated in the design studio of Harley Earl from the Buick motor company division of General Motors, whose team also worked extensively on early camouflage paint. The Hellcat remained the standard USN carrier-borne fighter until the F4U series was finally cleared for U.S. carrier operations in late 1944 (the carrier landing issues had by now been tackled largely due to use of Corsair by the Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm). With this combination, Grumman estimated the XF6F-3s performance would increase by 25% over that of the XF6F-1. I will post replays of my good battles only so you can watch these replays and learn something. This heavy tank takes huge chunks out of the enemy's health, but a low rate of fire and not-so-great accuracy means you've got to get up close and personal for each of those devastating shots to count! "The Grumman Hellcat.". The T78's main focus is its 90mm M3 cannon, a familiar sight for many mid-tier American tanks. Stats; 3D Model; Compare; Modules; Options; VII The design was finalized by February 1944, and an order was placed for 25 vehicles. [21][22], Two night fighter subvariants of the F6F-3 were developed; the 18 F6F-3E's were converted from standard-3s and featured the AN/APS-4 10 GHz frequency radar in a pod mounted on a rack beneath the right wing, with a small radar scope fitted in the middle of the main instrument panel and radar operating controls installed on the port side of the cockpit. The U.S. successes were not just attributed to superior aircraft – from 1942 onwards, they faced increasingly inexperienced Japanese aviators and had the advantage of increasing numerical superiority. The insignia red outline around the national markings indicate that this picture was taken circa June–September 1943. Heavy Tanks T1 Heavy Tank T14.

Blitz Hangar v1.15.12 (client v7.6.262) The Japanese fighter could out-turn its American opponent with ease at low speed and enjoyed a slightly better rate of climb below 14,000 ft (4,300 m). "Grumman F6F Hellcat. Top Tanks. [26] After the first few F6F-5s were built, the small windows behind the main canopy were deleted. [18], Based on combat accounts of encounters between the F4F Wildcat and A6M Zero, on 26 April 1942, BuAer directed Grumman to install the more-powerful, 18-cylinder Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial engine – already powering Chance Vought's Corsair design since its own beginnings in 1940 – in the second XF6F-1 prototype. In April 1943 the General Motors company produced the first prototypes. Do not try to follow a loop or half-roll with a pull-through. IMHO Hellcat is better. Of the total figure, 1,298 were destroyed in training and ferry operations, normally outside of the combat zones. ... tanks.gg is a player created website for World of Tanks. [10][18] In addition, the rear fuselage and tail units were strengthened, and apart from some early production aircraft, the majority of the F6F-5's built were painted in an overall gloss sea-blue finish. The best of the best, the lines all new players should be looking at. Poor accuracy, poor pen, poor gun handling, poor capacity, poor ROF, and going up against a full tier higher of armor. [24] Hellcat night fighters claimed their first victories in November 1943. M18 Hellcat of the 824th Tank Destroyer Battalion in action at Wiesloch, Germany, April 1945.

Hellcats were the major U.S. Navy fighter type involved in the Battle of the Philippine Sea, where so many Japanese aircraft were shot down that Navy aircrews nicknamed the battle the "Great Marianas Turkey Shoot". [11], Throughout early 1942, Leroy Grumman, along with his chief designers Jake Swirbul and Bill Schwendler, worked closely with the U.S. Navy's Bureau of Aeronautics (BuAer) and experienced F4F pilots,[12] to develop the new fighter in such a way that it could counter the Zero's strengths and help gain air command in the Pacific Theater of Operations. The first production F6F-3, powered by an R-2800-10, flew on 3 October 1942, with the type reaching operational readiness with VF-9 on USS Essex in February 1943. please write Chat at Japanese only. The name Hellcat replaced it in early 1943 for the sake of simplicity, the Royal Navy at that time adopting the use of the existing American naval names for all the U.S.-made aircraft supplied to it, with the F6F-3 being designated Hellcat F Mk.I, the F6F-5, the Hellcat F Mk.II and the F6F-5N, the Hellcat NF Mk.II. 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. [55], The French Navy (Aéronavale) was equipped with F6F-5 Hellcats and used them in combat in Indochina. [14][Note 3] BuAer's Lt Cdr A. M. Jackson [Note 4] directed Grumman's designers to mount the cockpit higher in the fuselage. The U.S. Navy much preferred the more docile flight qualities of the F6F compared with the Vought F4U Corsair, despite the superior speed of the Corsair. One of my clanmates put it well. [46], Hamilton McWhorter III was a United States Navy aviator and a flying ace of World War II, credited with shooting down twelve Japanese aircraft. [41], U.S. Navy and Marine F6F pilots flew 66,530 combat sorties and claimed 5,163 kills (56% of all U.S. Navy/Marine air victories of the war) at a recorded cost of 270 Hellcats in aerial combat (an overall kill-to-loss ratio of 19:1 based on claimed kills). The Hellcat and Jackson are both good and fun tanks. Test your mettle against players from around the world with the ultimate war machines of the era. By that time, however, the Chaffee wasn’t even in the prototype stage, so this concept was purely theoretical. OPNAV-P-23V No. [53], The Hellcat was used for second-line USN duties, including training, Naval Reserve squadrons, and a handful were converted to target drones. The new heavy tank was powered by the Ford GAC V-12, liquid- cooled engine developing 770 horsepower at 2800 rpm. Taylor, John W. R. "Grumman F6F Hellcat.

[52], After the war, the Hellcat was succeeded by the F8F Bearcat, which was smaller, more powerful (powered by uprated Double Wasp radials) and more maneuverable, but entered service too late to see combat in World War II. Building An Amusement Park In Minecraft! [9] Instead of the Wildcat's narrow-track, hand-cranked main landing gear retracting into the fuselage that it had inherited, little changed in design from the 1931-debuted Grumman FF-1 fighter biplane, the Hellcat had wide-set, hydraulically actuated landing gear struts that rotated through 90° while retracting backwards into the wings, but with full wheel doors fitted to the struts that covered the entire strut and the upper half of the main wheel when retracted, and twisted with the main gear struts through 90º during retraction. [30] Another experimental prototype was the XF6F-2 (66244), an F6F-3 converted to use a Wright R-2600-15, fitted with a Birman-manufactured mixed-flow turbocharger, which was later replaced by a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-21, also fitted with a Birman turbocharger. The development of this assault tank began in Great Britain in 1942. ], Grumman had been working on a successor to the F4F Wildcat since 1938 and the contract for the prototype XF6F-1 was signed on 30 June 1941.

Six 5 in (127 mm) high-velocity aircraft rockets (HVARs) could be carried – three under each wing on "zero-length" launchers. The plane equipped four squadrons (including the Normandie-Niemen squadron of WWII fame) before these units transitionned to the F8F Bearcat. This version never entered production and 02981 was converted to an F6F-3 production aircraft. [27] The F6F-5N night-fighter variant was fitted with an AN/APS-6 radar in a fairing on the outer-starboard wing. The Corsair was thus released by the Navy to the Marine Corps, which without the need to worry about carrier landings, used the Corsair to immense effect in land-based sorties. [57], The Uruguayan Navy also used them until the early 1960s. [38] Soon after, on 23 and 24 November, Hellcats engaged Japanese aircraft over Tarawa, shooting down a claimed 30 Mitsubishi Zeros for the loss of one F6F.
