A combination of four 20mm cannons and four .50 caliber machine guns gave the Tigercat high takedown power and substantial ground attack capability. Unfortunately, it was also heavy and difficult to handle on the small flattops of WWII. Its carrier handling problems relegated it to land bases and its late arrival meant it only saw combat service in the Korean War. Additionally, the obsession with new jet engine aircraft soon saw Tigercat production halted.
