By 1944, the United States Navy required an Anti-Submarine Warface (ASW) to replace the TBM Avenger, so Grumman responded with the first aircraft used for this purpose.
Made to measure for the United States Navy, this aircraft featured two fuselage versions, one used for detection called “Hunter” and another carried the weapon system which they called “Killer”.
It was a very short time that this aircraft was operational and its production was 389 units of which three variants were made, AF-2S, AF-2W.
The AF-2W version was in charge of the detection of submarines by means of an AP-20 Radar mounted in the Belly together with an early warning radar and the AF-2S version carried a weapons system that comprised torpedoes, depth charges or rockets in the bomb bay or under their wings.
