Buy FSX Steam Edition: Wildcat & Martlet Add-On


About This Content

Developed by Just Flight, the Wildcat and Martlet add-on for FSX: Steam Edition contains four different aircraft - the Grumman F4F-3 and F4F-4 Wildcats and also the Martlet I and Martlet IV, the British name given to the F4F-3 and F4F-4-based aircraft which were supplied to Britain from the earliest days of WWII.

Other than the Wildcat, no other American aircraft fought throughout the entirety WWII, from 1940 to VJ Day in 1945. The Wildcat was there when the US Navy and Marines entered the Pacific theater and also when the final atomic bomb was dropped. In addition to service in the North Atlantic, British Martlets saw combat in warmer climates such as Malt and North Africa as well as alongside their American counterparts throughout the Pacific.

The Wildcat could be considered the US Navy’s answer to the Spitfire, as it performed heroically against considerable odds in often difficult conditions. Notable examples of military activity featuring this aircraft include the battles of Coral Sea and Midway, as well as later in the dark days of the early Pacific islands campaigns at infamous locations such as Guadalcanal and Rabaul.
