HBB80312 1/48 North American FJ-4 Fury
- Customer Reviews
The FJ-3 used a more powerful engine and ironed out the FJ-2's flaws. Finally the USN had a fighter to match the F-86 but it suffered from engine reliability issues. The FJ-4 was extensively redesigned with an even more powerful engine and new wing. Other features included more fuel tanks and less ammunition and a modified cockpit, all of which gave it more range. Most of the FJ-4's went to US Marine squadrons and it was never the main USN fighter as within several years both the more advanced F3H Demon and F-8 Crusader entered service.
