Inaccurate, incomplete[edit]

Over the next days, I will rewrite the article. A total of over 600 Ducks were built, the article claims only 48. FWiW Bzuk (talk) 11:53, 2 April 2010 (UTC).

Is there even a need for this article given that the J2F Duck article is fully developed? FWiW Bzuk (talk) 13:03, 2 April 2010 (UTC).
Agree; should "merge" be requested? DPdH (talk) 01:21, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Use by Argentina?[edit]

I's unclear where the mention of Argentine Navy use of the JF-2 is a confusion with the documented use of the J2F. See for example the G-15/20 entry in Histarmar website (accessed today), and the book Grumman G.15, G.20 & J2F Duck (Serie Aeronaval Nro. 15) ((in Spanish); Nuñez Padin, Jorge Félix; Buenos Aires, Argentina: Museo de Aviación Naval, Instituto Naval; 2002). Can anyone help clarify this? ThanksDPdH (talk) 01:20, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

Is the JF the same plane as the G-15?[edit]

I'm confused... this article mentions the G-20 as a variant of the JF-2; while the article about the Grumman J2F Duck refers to that plane as the G-15. Is this correct? If so, based on which verifiable source? Thanks DPdH (talk) 01:29, 31 January 2015 (UTC)

According to the Air Enthusiast article, the G-20 was an armed version of the JF-2 used by Argentina, while the G-15, despite the earlier designation, was the Grumman designation of the J2F. Argentina had eight G-20s in 1937 followed by four G-15s in 1939. Cite added to the article for the G-20.Nigel Ish (talk) 09:51, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
