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.

The F6F-5's only appearances are on the latest handheld Ace Combat games, alongside the A6M5 Type Zero Carrier Fighter.
