The Fairey Firefly is a WWII carrier borne reconnaissance/fighter, fighter bomber and anti submarine aircraft.

Designed to the standard contemporary FAA concept of a two-seat fleet reconnaissance/fighter, the pilot and observer were positioned at separate stations. The Firefly was superior in both performance and firepower to its predecessor, the Fairey Fulmar. A lengthy design process meant that the type only entered operational service towards the end of WWII when it was no longer competitive as a fighter. The combination of single engine and large airframe reduced its performance, but it was fairly sturdy, long-ranged, and carrier friendly during operations.

The Fairey Firefly served in the Second World War as a fleet fighter. After the war it was adapted to perform in other roles, including strike operations and anti-submarine warfare. Both British and Australian Fireflies routinely performed ground–attack operations from various aircraft carriers during the Korean conflict and were used by various nations up until the 1960's.
