Designed around the 2,000 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800 radial engine and with a propeller larger than any fighter ever designed, the Chance Vought FU4 Corsair became a true World War II legend in the Pacific theater of operations.
The Corsair reached a maximum speed of 650 km/h and had a climb speed of 16m/s, which made it the fastest fighter of its time.
In November 1941 the US Navy asked the Vought company to add a night radar to the F4U-1, however, this was not executed by Vought and it had to be the NAF (“Naval Aircraft Factory”) which made these modifications, producing the first Night fighter of the series: the F4U-2, for it had to reduce part of the standard armament of the Corsair, to be replaced by the night radar.
The FU4-2 Corsair was one of the pioneering fighters in the night flying tactics employed throughout the war.
