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.

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!

didn't know they used B-26s as well. I'm aware they used P-51 Mustangs, F4U Corsairs, B-29s in the Korean War and they also fused two P51 Mustangs fusages together to make an F-82 "Twin Mustang" www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGkgKI… . Also discovered this: www.militaryfactory.com/aircra…

I'd love it if you drew a T-26 GSA "Banshee", but considering what is, I don't think it'd interest you.
