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.

Trivia

  • Since the F6F-5 hasn't been added to Ace Combat Infinity, it has never been properly classified as a Piston Fighter.
  • In real life, the Hellcat would be barely able to damage modern aircraft with its machine guns' 0.50 inch M2 Browning cartridge. However, for balance reasons, they are perfectly able to damage enemy aircraft.
  • In Ace Combat: Joint Assault and Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy, since all aircraft guns deal the same or similar damage with the same rate of fire on every gun, the F6F-5 and A6M5 can actually deal more damage per second since the two aircraft have six and four guns installed on the respective aircraft.
