Grumman was a military airplane manufacturer that made a series of fighter planes for the U.S. navy starting with World War Two. For some reason, Grumman started naming their planes after cats such as their first fighter dubbed the Wildcat.

This was quickly followed by the Hellcat, Bearcat, Tigercat, Panther, Cougar, and Tomcat. Not surprisingly, all of Grumman’s airplanes named after cats were built tough and dangerous to their enemies, just like a real cat. 

Perhaps if this country wants to win the next war, they would go back to naming weapons after cats. After all, it worked once and by matching the true personality of a cat, these fighter planes can strike fear into the hearts of any enemy, just like a real cat can do.
