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 first appeared in a mid-2010 gameplay trailer, where a Hellcat was shot down by an [[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 it's Japanese counterpart, the [[A6M5 Zero]].

The F6F-5 can be unlocked by getting a A+ rank on mission 1 via a second playthough 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 capabilites, but exceptional stability and mobility.

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. It's 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 is one of the few weapons compatible with the [[Fuel Air Explosion Bomb]].
