Brewster F2A Buffalo   4.25"   5.75"

In 1939 the US diverted some Brewster Buffaloes to Finland that had USN equipment removed such as self-sealing fuel tanks and pilot armor plus This lighter aircraft also receive a different engine. These aircraft were designated Brewster Model B-239. The Finns added an armored pilot backrest and metric instruments. They also added their own gun-sights and four .50 inch (12.7mm) machine guns. In Finland the aircraft was referred to as the Brewster, never the Buffalo.

Brewster F2A Buffalo

Designed to meet a 1936 US Navy requirement for a new carrier-based fighter, the F2A was first flown in December, 1937. The stout F2A Buffalo was the U.S. Navy's first monoplane fighter, but it suffered from poor maneuverability and proved to be too heavy for dogfighting. Its four 12.7mm machine guns weren't even enough to save this aircraft—during the Battle of Midway, 13 of 19 Buffalos were lost to enemy fire. Finland proved to be the only successful user of the Brewster F2A Buffalo, fighting off wave after wave of Soviet aggression during three years of war.
