The Wildcat was outperformed by the Mitsubishi Zero, but held its own because, with relatively heavy armor and self-sealing fuel tanks, the Wildcat airframe could survive far more damage than the Zero. Many U.S. Navy fighter pilots also were saved by the Wildcat's homing device, which allowed them to find their carriers in poor visibility.
