The F4F was initially designs by the Grumman Company as bi-plane (plane with two wings). The design was later changed to a monoplane (one wing) when the proto type was built in 1937. The plane was produced first as a fixed wing aircraft. Later versions were made so the wings could fold up for easier storage on an aircraft carrier. The plane was sold to the British under the name of Martlet I and III. It was also ordered by France, but the delivery was diverted to Britain after the fall of France. General Motors produced versions of the Grumman Wildcat under the designation FM-1 and FM-2. The most popular of the F4F design planes was the folding wing F4F-4 Wildcat which had over 1,300 produced for the United States Navy.
