The UK government asked Brewster to build more F3U-1's with the Bristol centaurus engine, but when the war in Europe ended they cancelled the last order and so they went to the US navy. Here is one from VF-53 in 1952.




After the war the French Navy ordered some more F3U-1 centaurus. here is one from Flotille 12F from Aeronavale in 1956.

Those Centaurus-powered F3U-1s look sharp in blue! Good to see that the AltHist Brewster got new management  ;)  Would the Centaurus have been licence-built in the US, I wonder?

The marines got their centaurus F3U too, it was the F3U-1C with the gull-wing. Here is one from VMF-235 serving in Korea.

Hello Lauhof,

I am really enjoying the run of Centaurus F3's  :D  How about an example or two from the Netherlands?  Maybe one flying off of the Karel Doorman....
