The Grumman F6F Hellcat was a carrier-based fighter aircraft developed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat in U.S.Navy service. Although the F6F bore a family resemblance to the Wildcat, it was a completely new design.It proved to be the most successful aircraft in naval history, destroying 5,271 aircraft while in service with the U.S. and Royal Navy during World War II.

Postwar, the Hellcat aircraft was systematically phased out of front line service, but remained in service as late as 1954 as a night fighter in composite squadrons, and in several other countries air forces.
