GA-7 Cougar[edit]

I added a link from F9F Cougar (an a/c built by Grumman) (automatically redirected from "Grumman Cougar" !!) to Gulfstream American GA-7 Cougar (Company later purchased by Grumman…)Jaypee1 13:32, 20 November 2006 (UTC)

According the Gulfstream American GA-7 Cougar article, this Cougar name was not used until after Gulfstream bought the civil division of Grumman. Also, I have added a standard "other uses" template. - BillCJ 17:23, 20 November 2006 (UTC)


vs MiG-15 Speculation / Bluster[edit]

I edited this article: 1. to remove some blustering, unsubstantiated nonsense about how the Cougar could 'hold its own' with the MiG-15. While potentially true, given that it never saw combat against the MiG15, this is at best conjecture. I modified the relevant paragraph to reflect this. 2. to call it a 'Soviet' MiG-15 and not a 'Russian' MiG-15. The ignorance of people who know the number of rivets of oil pans on obscure interwar one off aircraft but can't be bothered to get the name of the major WW2/Cold War player correct is just maddening. saying 'Russian MiG-15' is as ignorant and incorrect as saying 'English Lancaster Bomber' or 'Californian Air Force Over Korea.' It's just incorrect and ignorant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.26.5.144 (talk) 12:00, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Supersonic in Dive?[edit]

There was a book written by retired RADM Paul T. Gillchrist, titled "Feet Wet", who stated the F9F-Cougars could go supersonic in a dive. Is this true? AVKent882 (talk) 17:37, 25 April 2010 (UTC)

F8F-8 Typo[edit]

There is a photo about half way down the page labeled "The F9F-8 was fitted with an inflight refueling probe and Sidewinder missiles." When opened, this link loads a file incorrectly named "F8F---" instead of "F9F---". I would fix this but I don't know how. Would appreciate it if someone who knows how fixed this.

Grumman F9F Cougar[edit]

Any objection to moving the article to Grumman F9F Cougar? F9F appears to be more common than F-9. - BilCat (talk) 23:32, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

No objection - it spent about half its life being on or the other but I suspect F9F is more common and the more active period. MilborneOne (talk) 14:19, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
