The F4U was designed in 1938 to meet the U.S. Navy's need for a high-speed carrier-based fighter. The governing principle behind the design of this plane was to place the largest possible engine in the smallest frame. This changed the possible landing gear configurations and ultimately resulted in the introduction of the inverted gullwing. While the plane proved to be unsuitable for carrier operation, it was used extensively in a land-based role.
