The Corsair was one of WWII’s most superb fighters, achieving a victory ratio of nearly 11:1 in the Pacific. Had things worked out differently, its sister craft, Goodyear’s F2G... More > “Super” Corsair, might have eclipsed that record. Based on Goodyear’s fixed-wing F1G design, the F2G had a bubble cockpit and was fitted with a Pratt & Whitney R-4360 engine.
