The first Firebrand flew in 1942 but various design changes saw the final production TF5 ( 68 built) entering service with the Royal Navy in 1945 but to late to partake in the war.

A mix of Corsair Mk II's with external fuel tanks and in the background, Fairey Barracudas parked on the deck of HMS Formidable during operations off the Norwegian coast in July 1944. (IWM photograph #A 24787) Now I wonder if it is at all possible to have that many aircraft together on the flightdeck??Or could the photo have been manipulated to provide misinformation to the enemy?

Operations Diplomat, Cockpit and Transom were initiated in an effort to help the Royal Navy's armoured flight deck aircraft carriers adapt to war in the Pacific.

Picture of the Fairey Albacore in flight, complete with torpedo. In this picture the enclosed crew compartment is not clearly visible, but details around the engine cowling and the shape of the tail plane identify this aircraft as a Albacore rather than the similiar Fairey Swordfish.
