VF-84 “Wolf Gang” was established on May 1, 1944. Most of its pilots were former members of VF-17 “Jolly Rogers”. The Commanding Officer was Lt. Cdr. Roger Hedrick, former XO of VF-17. Because so many members were ex “Jolly Rogers”, Hedrick tried to have VF-84 bare the name but was refused. VF-84 took part in the final assaults on the Japanese at Iwo Jima, the raids on Tokyo, sinking of the Yamato and Okinawa. The squadron was deactivated on October 8, 1945.

The F6F was a US Navy carrier-based fighter aircraft developed to replace the F4F Wildcat. The F6F Hellcat and F4U Corsair were the primary US Navy fighters during the second half of WWII First flown on June 26, 1942, the F6F Hellcat entered service in 1943. It proved to be the most successful aircraft in naval history, destroying 5,271 enemy aircraft while in service.
