Lla Grumman F9F Panther was the first jet fighter used by the United States Navy and Marine Corps in the Korean War. It was designed in the late 1940s as a carrier-based fighter that could operate from the new angled-deck aircraft carriers. The Panther had a straight wing design and a single Pratt & Whitney J48 turbojet engine that gave it a top speed of 575 mph. The Panther was armed with four 20 mm cannons and could carry up to 2,000 pounds of bombs or rockets. The Panther was also the first jet aircraft to be fitted with an ejection seat.
Le Panther est entré en service en 1949 et a combattu pendant la guerre de Corée de 1950 à 1953. Il a été utilisé pour le combat air-air, l’attaque au sol et les missions de reconnaissance. Le Panther a marqué le premier avion contre avion de l’histoire lorsque le capitaine de corvette William T. Amen a abattu un MiG-15 nord-coréen le 9 novembre 1950. Le Panther a également effectué la première mission de combat à réaction au-dessus de la Chine le 21 février 1952. Le Panther s’est avéré fiable et efficace, mais a rapidement été surclassé par le MiG-15 plus rapide et plus maniable. Le Panther a été remplacé par le Grumman F9F Cougar à ailes en flèche en 1954.
Lla Panthère was also exported to Argentina and Uruguay, where it served until the late 1960s. A total of 1,382 Panthers were built, of which 78 were lost in combat. The Panther is considered to be one of the most successful jet fighters of its era and a milestone in naval aviation history.
