In June 1942, the first production of the F4U-1s were delivered. The famous "Black Sheep" squadron of book and TV series fame immortalized the Corsair in the blue South Pacific skies. The F4U-4 was the definitive version of the F4U Corsair. It features a four-bladed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller, a new cockpit layout, a clear view sliding hood, a two stage turbo-supercharged engine and under wing attachment points for 8.5" rockets or bombs. Most F4U-4s retained the standard armament of 6- .50 caliber wing mounted machine guns. This F4U-4 Corsair Black Sheep Squadron Model is based on the original F4U-4, which incorporated a Pratt & Whitney R-2000-18W. It has a maximum speed of 435 mph at 15,000 ft and a range of 1,005 miles at 214 mph at 15,000 ft.
