Ag 1- folding Wings
Ag 2- Drop Fuel Tank

F4U-5N and -5NL Corsair night fighters were used to attack enemy supply lines, including truck convoys and trains, as well as interdicting night attack aircraft (such as the Polikarpov Po-2 "Bedcheck Charlies", which were used to harass United Nations forces at night). The F4Us often operated with the help of C-47 'flare ships' which dropped hundreds of 1,000,000 candlepower magnesium flares to illuminate the targets. For many operations detachments of U.S. Navy F4U-5Ns were posted to shore bases.

    @TheWhistlingDeath Well it's a lot easier to modify the wing of an aircraft than the fuselage. Plus there really isn't a place for it to go on or inside of the fuselage.

    @TheGuyYouMightKnow oh that makes sense I know I should not question the corsairs beauty but is there a story on why it is on the wing instead of somewhere on the fuselage

    As far as I'm concerned, the Double-Wasp was the baddest engine in World War 2. There's no comparison when it comes to the brutal combination of ruggedness and raw power. This baby right here is the meanest plane to ever carry one, Whistling Death. Awesome build. I love this Korean War night camo and red markings.
