F7F-3P Tigercat.jpg

Grumman F7F Tigercat adalah pesawat tempur bermesin ganda pertama yang memasuki layanan dengan Angkatan Laut Amerika Serikat.

Dirancang untuk kapal induk kelas Midway baru, pesawat terlalu besar untuk beroperasi dari deck sebelumnya. Meskipun dikirimkan ke United States Marine Corps (USMC) unit tempur sebelum akhir Perang Dunia II, Tigercat tidak melihat layanan tempur dalam perang itu. Kebanyakan F7F berakhir di layanan berbasis darat, sebagai pesawat serangan atau pesawat tempur malam, hanya kemudian F7F-4n bersertifikat untuk layanan operator. Mereka melihat pelayanan di Perang Korea dan telah ditarik dari layanan pada tahun 1954. Grumman F7F-3N drawing.jpg
