Raised pilot seat, frameless bubble canopy to improve visibility, and larger blade propeller were adopted. In addition to six 12.7mm machine guns, the F4U-1D featured a 900kg bomb payload or extra fuel tanks, as well as 8 rockets that could be loaded to the outer wings. When the US Navy began to conduct air strikes on the Japanese homeland in February 1945, the F4U-1D demonstrated its true effectiveness as a fighter bomber.
