American WWII's aircraft


Consolidated-Vultee TBY Sea Wolf

This was to be the production version of the TBU. The USN required serveral changes, including an engine change. The TBY demonstrated a better performance than the TBF, but flew first in 1944, had numerous technical faults, and was not very suitable for carrier operations. The TBY was only operated by training units.
