When the Japanese attacked the United States in 1941, the most modern fighter in the Navy was the Grumman F4F Wildcat. Although the Wildcat was small, it was not as fast or maneuverable as the Japanese Zero Fighter, but it was a very durable machine. However, in the hands of an experienced pilot, the Wildcat could best the feared Zero. Thankfully, the Grumman fighter was able to fend off the enemy until the more powerful Hellcat was available about one year later.
