Fg-1d-corsair

In 1943, the F4U-1C variant was developed. It differed mainly from the F4F-1A in its armament: instead of six machine guns, the plane had four 20-mm cannons. Because of its low rate of fire, the new Corsair was used primarily to attack ground targets and for nighttime interceptions and took practically no part in aerial fighter combat.
