History:

The Grumman F8F Bearcat which first entered service in May, 1945, was designed to replace the F6F Hellcat as an interceptor-fighter operating from small escort carriers.

Compared to its famous predecessor, the Bearcat was 20% lighter, had a 30% better rate of climb and was 50 mph (80 km/h) faster.

Because of that outstanding performance the Bearcat was placed into service with 24 squadrons, making it one of the U.S. Navy's premier post-World War II fighters.
