A carrier-based fighter from the Wildcat F4F series that fought fiercely with the Zero over the Pacific during the early stages of the great war. This model, the FM-2, is an improved, late-stage, mass production model, trading high altitude performance for improved maneuverability and torque handling at lower altitudes to make it a masterpiece general-purpose carrier support fighter. The FM-2 was deployed aboard ships like the escort carriers being churned out on a weekly basis. This time, the FM-2 enters the field as a general-purpose support fighter with anti-ship and anti-ground capabilities.
The B on the tail fin and color scheme suggest the in-game FM-2 is based off the FM-2 "Mah Baby" piloted by Lt. Bruce A. McGraw of VC-10, deployed aboard Gambier Bay during the Battle off Samar.
By 1944 the United States was commissioning escort carriers at a rate of roughly one carrier a week.
