Buffalo of the British Naval Air Force 1

The bulging Brewster Buffalos were the first fighter monoplanes aboard American aircraft carriers. However, the ships did not warm up for a long time on the ships and were quickly replaced by the more modern F4F Wildcat. The aircraft thus began its combat career in the air forces of Finland, Great Britain and the Netherlands. The following lines will introduce you to the work of the "buffalo" in the RAF.

Two combats of carrier-based fighters of His Majesty

During World War II, fighters of the British Naval Air Force ( FAA ) fought about 400 victories. Another 50 casualties were accepted by the command as probable. A large part of these victories were fired by fighters in the critical phase of the conflict, from 1940 to 1942, with weapons of such inferior aircraft types as the Blackburn Skua multi-purpose aircraft or the two-seater Fairey Fulmar fighters. The conditions under which British naval fighters faced German and Italian aircraft will help bring two of the many battles of the time closer.
