Known as the Wildcat, the F4F series fought valiantly against the Zero squadrons despite being inferior.

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.
