The Grumman '''F6F-5 Hellcat''' was a carrier-based fighter aircraft developed to replace the earlier {{Template:Wp|F4F Wildcat}} in [[United States Navy]] service during WWII. Although the F6F bore a family resemblance to the Wildcat (not surprisingly, the original design was in fact a slightly modified version of the Wildcat, but this was changed later on), it was a completely new design powered by a 2,000 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800 Double Wasp radial engine,the same powerful engine that was installed on the {{Template:Wp|F-4U Corsair}} and {{Template:Wp|P-47 Thunderbolt}}. Some tagged it as the "Wildcat's big brother".
+
The '''F6F-5 Hellcat''' is a piston-powered [[fighter]] aircraft. A unique aircraft due to its antique nature, the F6F-5 cannot reach high speeds or equip missiles. However, it is highly agile and stable, allowing it to make tight maneuvers and excel in air-to-air combat.
==Ace Combat: Joint Assault==
 
The F6F-5 first appeared in a mid-2010 gameplay trailer, where a Hellcat was shot down by a Valahia [[Su-37 Terminator]] over [[Midway]]. It was finally confirmed by the site Eurogamer.pt in late June, when they released media featuring the Hellcat and its Japanese counterpart, the [[A6M5 Zero]].
 
   
The F6F-5 can be unlocked by getting a A+ rank on mission 1 via a second playthrough on Free Mission or campaign on any difficulty, after which it will be available for purchase at the Hangar screen for $9,900. Statistics-wise, it is virtually identical to the A6M5, having low speed, weak armor and low combat capabilities, but exceptional stability and mobility.
+
The F6F-5's only appearances are on the latest handheld ''[[Ace Combat]]'' games, alongside the [[A6M5 Type Zero Carrier Fighter]].
   
Being a World War II-era plane, the Hellcat shares the Zero's inability to carry missiles, making it very difficult for it to defend itself against modern aircraft. Its stability allows it to conduct airstrikes without any major difficulty, although its low ammo capacity (being higher than the Zero's at 7-10) requires careful aiming. It can be armed with a [[Rocket Launcher]], Unguided Bomb (Large) and the [[Napalm Bomb]]. To compensate for its combat capabilities, it is one of the few aircraft compatible with the [[Fuel Air Explosive Bomb]].

{{Quote|This [[Piston Fighter|propeller fighter]]'s design incorporates substantial armor while maintaining impressive mobility.|[[Hangar]]}}
 
In ''[[Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy]]'', the '''F6F-5 Hellcat''' is a secret fighter aircraft.
 
   
While this aircraft still retains the inability to use missiles, it is much more potent in Assault Horizon Legacy because of the new aerial maneuvers system as well as the enhanced tuning system. Also, the F6F-5 and the [[A6M5 Type Zero Carrier Fighter|A6M5 Type Zero]] are both extremely agile, and their machineguns are devastating enough to destroy even the [[ADF-01 FALKEN]]. Overall, this aircraft is superior to that of the Joint Assault variant, due to being more potent as a usable fighter.
