The Corsair was one of the most prominent fighter bombers of the Second World War.

The Corsair flew for the first time in March 1940, and the production corsairs joined the Marine Corps fighter squadrons on Guadalcanal in February 1942. The use of the aircraft carrier was delayed until 1944.

The design of the inverted gull wing allowed the coupling of a large propeller with the huge radial engine while maintaining the total height of the aircraft within the limitations imposed by the use of the carrier. The "-1D" was the first version of a true bomber and fighter of this aircraft, capable of carrying a bomb or rocket in support of ground troops.

Although it was a Chance Vought design, the corsairs were also built under contract by Brewster and Goodyear. The latter built 4,017 Corsairs with the designation "FG".

    Without being rude myself, just saying "fix and repost" is a bit rude. Saying, "The text on the side is inverted, I would recommend fixing that and reposting" would be a better way to put it.

    Don’t listen to BogdanX, if it’s not done his way, he freaks out. I think it looks great, and unlike him I’d be willing to help fix it if you would like @RicardoAs1515
