Fast and heavily armed, the Corsair dominated opposing Japanese aircraft
in the latter half of WWII. Following the initial F4U-1 and F4U-1A
variants which were flown from land bases by the U.S. Marine Corps, the
F4U-1D introduced in April 1944 was the first official carrier-capable
version. It had a raised pilot seat position, bubble canopy and broader
propeller blades. In addition to its six 12.7mm machine guns, it had two
additional pylons on the inner wings as well as the ability to carry
eight rockets on the outer wings. The type was used as a fighter-bomber
in attacks against the Japanese home islands from February 1945.
