Grumman F4F Wildcat / General Motors FM-2 Wildcat
FM-2 is the last and the most widely produced version of the Grumman F4F Wildcat aircraft. Manufactured entirely at General Motors Eastern Division plants under a new type designation. The aircraft was the basic fighter on the deck of escort aircraft carriers in the final phase of the 2nd World War on both Pacific and Atlantic . Along with TBF / TBM, Avenger was the "work-horse" of US Navy carrier-borne aviation.
