The F-4U Corsair featured a unique bent-wing design that ensured versatility in flight and combat situations. Rejected by the US Navy as an aircraft for carrier duty, but adopted and used to great success by the US Marine Corps. Featuring outstanding maneuverability, a remarkable turning radius, and sheer speed, the F-4U Corsair could face any adversary as a land-based fighter. It eventually served the British Fleet Air Arm after its successful run with the US Marine Corps, and it continued its excellent service throughout this time. These successes called the attention of the US Navy, leading them to reassess the F-4U Corsair. The aircraft served the Navy aboard its group of carriers. Its success did not end there, however, as the F-4U Corsair also saw action during the Korean War and served the French forces at the time when they were up against the Viet Minh.
