The F2A Buffalo was an American fighter aircraft. The F2A was one of the first U.S. World War II monoplanes with an arrestor hook and other modifications for aircraft carriers. Several nations, including Finland, Belgium, Britain and the Netherlands, ordered the Buffalo to bolster their struggling air arms, but of all the users, only the Finns seemed to find their Buffalos effective, flying them in combat with excellent results. Although superior to the Grumman F3F biplane it replaced, the Buffalo turned out to be a big disappointment.
