The Brewster Buffalo is a WWII fighter aircraft that served inearly WWII. In 1939, it won a contest over the Grumman F4F Wildcat tobecome the first monoplane fighter aircraft for the U.S. Navy. Whenthe U.S. entered the war, the Buffalos were obsolete due to theirunsavory handling characteristics and lackluster performance,especially compared to the famous Mitsubishi A6M Zero.
The Buffalo saw most of its success in Finland against sovietfighters. During the Continuation War in 1941-1944, the Finnish AirForce Buffalos did well engaging and destroying many Soviet fighteraircraft at that time. In the first phase of that conflict, 32 Sovietaircraft were shot down for each B-239 (de-navalized F2A-1) lost, and36 Buffalo "aces" were produced.
This Buffalo is made to represent either the B-239s operated by theFinnish Air Force, or the Navy Buffalos (3 U.S. liveries areincluded).
