The F4F is a famous shipboard fighter that competed with the Zero in the Pacific during the early stage of the Great War.
Known as the Wildcat, the F4F series fought valiantly against the Zero squadrons despite being inferior.


Fighters are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to bring Air Power during the 1st Aerial Stage, with their "Fighter Power" Anti-Air stat being the most important factor in this regard. Fighters are additionally needed for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI) during the day Shelling.
