The F7F Tigercat is a heavy fighter developed by Grumman at the End of the Second World War but it was delivered too late to participate to the fighting. The F7F participated, in an active way, to the first stages of Korean War and it served with the United States Navy and with the United States Marine Corps. Designed for service on aircraft carriers it has been mainly used as a land-based airplane. During the Korean War, it had performed night fighter, attack, close support and photo-reconnaissance duties.  Characterized by the adoption of two powerful radial Pratt & Whitney engines, the Tigercat was able to reach the speed of 740 Km/h. Furthermore, it has been equipped with an APS-6 radar system to optimize the effectiveness in night operations.
