Commonwealth Kangaroo F Mk-II

The CAC CA-15, also known unofficially as the CAC Kangaroo, was an Australian propeller-driven fighter aircraft designed by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) during World War II. The first prototype flew in December 1944 and the first operational aircraft were issued to the RAAF in September 1945.


The airraft was also used by the RAF and RNZAF in the Pacific Theatre from 1946 onwards. It's speed and heavy armament made it very well suited for the heavy fighter role.

Later marks were also used as fighter bombers and ground attack aircraft during the invasion of Japan in 1947.
