    Default Mustang, vs. Corsair, vs. Hellcat - Which is best?

    Which do you think had the best all around performance for a fighter aircaraft?
    -Speed, manouverability, firepower, range, durability.

    Mustang - Gorgeous Masculine fast, pinnacle of piston engine aircaraft

    Corsair - Big, pretty, versatile, mean, "Pappy Boyington"

    Hellcat - Really Big, tough, ugly, war winner.

    Best what? Fighter? Carrier aircraft? Bomber escort?

    Now i agree with pantherf . These are not aircrafts to be compared . P-51 is fighter which was build for escort and for high flights . F4U was the first fighter (i think) which beat Zero . The F6F was the one which destroyed japanese air power . The two last ( Corsair and Hellcat ) can be compared because they were both carrier fighters .

    A more accurate thread would be Corsair, Hellcat, I suppose you could use the Buffalo but no one will vote for that.......

    Guys...
    It's really a simple question. Each aircaraft had its own strengths and weaknesses. They were all used in the pacific theater, 1 took off from soil and 1 from a floating deck. and 1 did both. Makes no difference that 1 was an army aircraft and 2 are Navy.
    Which one of these was the best all around U.S. fighter?

    I am not asking which is the best Navy fighter. Although you may answer that as well.

    It is well established, the P-51 was very manouverable in the horizontal but inferior to the Corsair in the vertical. It is my understanding the Hellcat was about the equal to the Corsair in all dimensions but was slightly slower due to being a larger craft. However NO allied plane had a higher kill ratio than the Hellcat during the war. Why was this?

    Aesthetically, the Mustang every time, but the Corsair has a certain brutal charm...

    Thumbs up Corsair

    My pick would have to be the Corsair. Jap aces claimed it to be the best fighter the Allies had. And it was also a very good ground attack fighter. It was a good enough plane that production ran from 1940 to 1952, the longest of any piston engine fighter.

    Specially with that Argentine Navy insignia

    The Corsair all the time, just imagine this aircraft was being deployed in the ETO...a real night mare for the Luftwaffes Bf-109s.

    ...

    I wonder how many P-51Ds the RAF operated? What were their primary missions since I assume escorting RAF Bomber Command was left to nightfighters?
