Photo Comment

France ordered 81 Wildcats for carrier use in 1939. The French G-36A model was Wright R-1820 Cyclone-powered and had four machine guns, including two in the cowling. These aircraft were taken over by Britain as Martlet Is. Note the tricolour elevators. Photo from: Axis & Allies Paintworks
