Panthers Over Korea by rOEN911 Panthers Over Korea by rOEN911
F9F-2s, F9F-3s and F9F-5s served with distinction in the Korean War, mainly as attack aircraft, showing noticeable resistance to anti-aircraft fire; despite their relative slow speed, they also managed in downing two Yak-9s and five Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-15s for the loss of two F9Fs. On 3 July 1950, Lieutenant, junior grade Leonard H. Plog of U.S. Navy's VF-51 flying an F9F-3 scored the first U.S. Navy air victory of the war by shooting down a Yak-9.

"showing noticeable resistance to anti-aircraft fire"

 

Yes, it's a Grumman Aerospace aircraft. It can absorb things and just keep fighting! Thank you so much for making this! Grumman planes are my favorite!
