We are finally getting the F*****N Super corsairs!
The F4U-4 and F4U-4b were developed at the end of WWII based on the combat experience of the previous versions of this carrier-based fighter aircraft. They wanted better speed, boost and altitude, as well as improved attack capabilities. The F4U-4, is armed with 3 reliable 12.7 mm m2 50cals in each wing and the F4U-4b has 2 devastating 20 mm AN/M3 cannons in each win. Both received the new R-2800-18W with 2,250 hp per engine and huge four-bladed propellers. A new weapon carriage system allowed the Corsair to easily transform into a highly effective ground striker, and the modifications also allowed it to take on the role as a fast fighter-bomber. The F4U-4 was intensively used during the war in the Pacific, including the battle for Okinawa, the Tokyo raids, and many others. Following WWII, the F4U Corsair fought in the Korean war as well.
Its groundstrike presets will be:
1. 8 HVAR rockets
2. 2×1,000 lbs
3. 2×500 plus 4×250 lbs bombs.
The F4U-4 will be after the F4U-1c at tier 3, 5.0
The F4U-4b will be at tier 4 either after or before the F8F-1b, 6.3
Also, we have completely remodelled the entire F4U Corsair series in-game. Make sure you see how stunningly beautiful they have become in the upcoming War Thunder update 1.71 “New E.R.A.”! See you there!
