USA : F4U-1c
The F4U-1C «Corsair» was a single-seater, single-engine carrier-based fighter.
The unusual W-shaped wings of the F4U required screws of a diameter of about four meters. Those were the biggest screws ever used in a single-engine fighter.
In 1943, the F4U-1C variant was developed. It differed mainly from the F4F-1A in its armament: instead of six machine guns, the plane had four 20-mm cannons. Because of its low rate of fire, the new Corsair was used primarily to attack ground targets and for nighttime interceptions and took practically no part in aerial fighter combat.
