The F4U was developed as a high-performance carrier-based fighter, but the early models which experienced difficulties with carrier operations, was operated from land instead.
After some upgrades, they were deployed to carrier task forces.
This unit is a "Night Corsair" equipped with a radar pod for night operations.
A small number were deployed late in World War II for night interceptions and operations.


FightersFighterNight Fighter/Night Fighter 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.

Night Aircraft are planes that contribute to Carrier Night Air Attack damage.


Not to be confused with other aircraft of this family (see here).
