V Brewster F2A Buffalo je bilo ameriško lovsko letalo, ki je v začetku 2. svetovne vojne videlo službo. Zasnovana in zgrajena od brewster aeronavtične korporacije, je bila ena prvih enoletnih letal ZDA s kljuko za aretacijo in drugimi spremembami za letalonosilke. Buffalo je leta 1939 zmagal na tekmovanju proti Grumman F4F Wildcat, ki je postal prvo enoletno lovsko letalo 1939. Čeprav je bil boljši od dvokrilca Grumman F3F, ki ga je zamenjal in zgodnjih F4F, je bil Buffalo v veliki meri zastarel, ko so ZDA vstopile v vojno, saj je bil nesprejemljiv in pretežek, še posebej v primerjavi z japonskim Mitsubishi A6M Zero

Več informacij:

V Brewster F2A Buffalo was an American fighter aircraft that saw service in the early years of World War II. It was one of the first monoplane fighters to enter service with the US Navy, and was also used by several other countries, including Finland, Britain, and the Netherlands. The Buffalo was designed by Brewster Aeronautical Corporation, a company that had no previous experience in building fighter planes. The Buffalo had a low-wing cantilever monoplane configuration, with a retractable landing gear and an enclosed cockpit. It was powered by a single Wright R-1820 radial engine that drove a three-bladed propeller. The Buffalo had a maximum speed of about 300 mph (480 km/h) and a range of about 1,000 miles (1,600 km). The Buffalo was armed with four 0.50 in (12.7 mm) machine guns, two in the nose and two in the wings.
V Buffalo was initially intended to be a naval fighter, but it soon became apparent that it was outclassed by the Japanese Zero and other enemy aircraft. The Buffalo suffered heavy losses in the Pacific theater, where it earned the nickname “flying coffin” from its pilots. The Buffalo was also used by the British Commonwealth forces in the Mediterranean and Southeast Asia, where it fared slightly better against less advanced opponents. The most successful user of the Buffalo was Finland, which used it against the Soviet Union in the Winter War and the Continuation War. The Finnish pilots nicknamed the Buffalo “Taivaan helmi” (Sky Pearl) and achieved an impressive kill ratio of 26:1 with it. The Buffalo was eventually replaced by more modern fighters such as the Grumman F4F Wildcat and the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk. The Buffalo is considered to be one of the worst fighters of World War II, but also one of the most historically significant ones.
