Victory at Sea: US Navy Aircraft

After the devastation of Pearl Harbor the Americans relied heavily on theaircraft of their carrier fleets. By the Battle of Midway, the US Navy hadsubstantial numbers aircraft operating in theatre. The age of the battleship hadpassed, air power now dominated.

Grumman TBF/TBM Avenger: A blessed relief to Devastator pilots when itfinally rolled off the production lines, the Avenger was a good torpedo bomber,though this duty took its toll even on purposedesigned aircraft. With a crew ofthree, it had at least a fighting chance of defending itself and a well-placedtorpedo often meant the loss of several aircraft was a worthwhile trade for asinking enemy warship.

Grumman F4F Wildcat: Gaining Grumman a reputation for building toughaircraft, the Wildcat was never given an operational speed restriction.Barrel-shaped and with stubby wings, it was a natural carrier-based aircraft.Popular throughout the US Navy, it also saw service within the RoyalNavy’s Fleet Air Arm, where it was initially known as the Martlet.

PBY 5 Catalina: The Catalina was used for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)duties, convoy escort, patrol bomber and transport. Armed with five machine gunsfor defence, it was capable of carrying either a bomb or torpedo load and wasresponsible for sinking many submarines in both the Atlantic and Pacifictheatres.
