The initial mass production model of the F6F series. It is the successor to the F4F series of US Navy carrier-based fighters that cut short the rampage of the Zero fighters after the early days of the Pacific War.
As a powerful carrier-based fighter equipped with a high-powered engine, it gradually overwhelmed the Zero in battle.


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.


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