Chance Vought F4U-7 Corsair


The final production model of the Corsair was produced for the French navy. It used the AU-1 airframe, a Pratt & Whitney R-2800-43W engine, and carried the same four cannons as the AU-1 or F4U-5. Visually it most closely resembled the F4U-4. Top speed was 440 mph. Ninety four aircraft were produced between July 1952 and January 1953. The French Corsairs saw action in Indo-china, Algeria and Suez before their retirement in 1964.
