Adevelopment of the Grumman F9 Panther, the F9F Cougar differed by nature of a swept wing, horizontal tailplane and improved performance. The Panther hadn't fared too well against the MiG-15 in the Korean war and the Cougar was developed to remmedy this situation, although it arrived too late to see action. With hostilities at an end, the Cougar went on to serve in reconnissance and target drone roles and was later adopted by the US Navy aerobatic team – The Blue Angels – as their first jet display aircraft. THE KIT Developed to a scale of 1:5 from original factory drawings, the kit is by Airworld in Germany.
