Hellcat Minsi 3

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

In an interview i read McCampbell said that he usually carried either rockets or bombs when he flew. Does this mean Minsi would have had the bomb racks fitted all the time or would they be removed if rockets were fitted?  Apologies if this is a simple question , but im not that clued up on aircraft weaponary.

There would have been no reason to remove the bomb racks under the inner wings.  They were very small, and I doubt they contributed anything measurable to the overall drag on the Hellcat.  They were part of the airplane when it left the factory.
