The Grumman F6F 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".
