Before its success during the Second World War, the Grumman F4F Wildcat was deemed as underdog. Designed as a biplane, the Wildcat was met with disapproval from US Navy personnel, who were used to flying monoplanes at the time. Despite the opposition, the F4F aircraft proved to be a valuable asset during the war. Taking off from carriers, the Wildcats flew to the Pacific Islands where it tussled with the more maneuverable Japanese Zero fighter planes. Thanks to its more robust armament and exceptionally skilled pilots, the Wildcats came out victorious during the war.
