During the Korean War, the Corsair was used mostly in the close-support role. The AU-1 Corsair was developed from the F4U-5. It was designed as a dedicated ground attack aircraft, unlike all the previous Corsairs which were designed as fighters. To fit that role the Pratt & Whitney R-2800-83W engine used a single-stage, manually controlled supercharger, rather than the two-stage automatic supercharger of the -5, additional armor was fitted, and the AU-1 had increased suspended armament capacity.
The Cobi Corsair kit – set number 2415 - was developed under license from the American mega defense technology company Northrop Grumman. The AU-1™ Corsair® contains 330 COBI blocks and one pilot figure. The model of the fighter aircraft from COBI was created with attention to the smallest details. The aircraft has a movable propeller and fins. Its rotating wheels with rubber tires can be extended from the chassis in the take-off or landing position. The wings are folded in a way that is characteristic of this aircraft. Block hooks allow you to attach rockets, as well. The cabin can be opened to place the pilot figure at the controls. The aircraft has been covered with high-quality prints that do not scratch or smear even during intense fun. In this set stickers have been completely abandoned. The prints reproduce the painting and equipment of the Korean war aircraft.
