The Grumman F6F-5 was exactly what they were looking for with the first production model flying in October 1942 and 12,274 Hellcats built by the end of the war. In terms of size, the Hellcat was the second largest single engine fighter of the war, being just slightly smaller than the Republic P-47 "Thunderbolt". One of the best kept secrets of WWII was the Ulithi Atoll of the Caroline Islands. Early 1945 saw almost 200 battleships, cruisers, destroyers, carriers and hundreds more supply ships anchored there to make it possible for the U.S. to advance across the Pacific toward Japan. On May 30, 1945 Falalop Island became the new home for the VMF(N)-541 “Bat Eye Squadron” protecting the fleet anchored there. Morale became so low that the 541 was the first war time Marine unit permitted to paint nose art on their aircraft.
