      Always strikes me that the Banshee was very similar in many respects to the Hawker Sea Hawk with which it was a contemporary which served with Britain W Germany and India, Similar roles and similar adequate but not stunning performance, doesn't really stand out.

        This is one of those times that I know neither aircraft. I went Neptune because it was available slightly earlier, and used in greater numbers and by more nations. It's a case of using 'logic' to hide my ignorance.

          The Banshee was an improved FH Phantom, a 1944-45 design and the USN's first jet fighter.



          The Banshee became the first in an ongoing line of jet all-weather / night fighters for the USN. It was developed about 5 years ahead of the Sea Hawk and by the time the Sea Hawk was really entering service (1952 -53) the F2H Banshee was already winding down it's service life.

            The Banshee looks almost like a P-80.

              Neptune for the numbers and what I see as more effective overall usefulness.
