Le 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.
Il Panther entrò in servizio nel 1949 e combatté nella guerra di Corea dal 1950 al 1953. È stato utilizzato per il combattimento aria-aria, l'attacco al suolo e le missioni di ricognizione. Il Panther mise a segno la prima uccisione jet-versus-jet della storia quando il tenente comandante William T. Amen abbatté un MiG-15 nordcoreano il 9 novembre 1950. Il Panther volò anche la prima missione di combattimento a reazione sulla Cina il 21 febbraio 1952. Il Panther si dimostrò affidabile ed efficace, ma fu presto surclassato dal più veloce e manovrabile MiG-15. Il Panther fu sostituito dal Grumman F9F Cougar ad ala a freccia nel 1954.
Le Pantera 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.
