The F2H-2 was first ordered in May of 1948, and the first example (BuNo 123204) flew on August 18, 1949. A total of 364 F2H-2 Banshees were built, the first being delivered in the winter of 1949 and the last in May of 1952.
 

The F2H-2 Banshee was delivered to the following Navy and Marine Corps squadrons: VF-11, VF-12, VF-22, VF-62, VF-171, VF-172, VMF-122, VMF-214, VMF-224, and VMJ-1
The high climb rate and the good altitude performance of the F2H-2 made it attractive as an escort fighter. VF-172 arrived in Korean waters aboard the USS Essex (CV-9) in August of 1951. Their first mission was to escort a flight of USAF B-29s in an attack on some North Korean railroad marshaling years on August 25, 1951.

This combat cruise ended in November 1951. Since Banshees were assigned with higher priority to the Sixth Fleet in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, the Navy F2H-2s did not return to the Korean War zone until the autumn of 1952.

In September 1952, the Banshee returned to Korean waters, with VF-11 deploying aboard the USS Kearsarge(CV-33). They were followed by VF-22 and VF-62 in June of 1953, deploying aboard the USS Lake Champlain (CVA-39).

For the most part Ian Pearson's review at http://www.screenshotartist.co.uk/razbam_banshee_review.htm is spot on.

The flight model makes this plane an easy flyer without that "gamey" feel that many otherwise nicely modelled planes suffer from.

Though subsonic, this is a fairly fast plane that keeps it's speed quite well. Engine's got plenty of power to put you overspeed in a hurry, which also means you get a pretty decent climb rate.

Some of the VC switches and dials are flat texture maps but these are largely the ones that have no function in FSX. True to form, many of the switches require a few contortions to get to. Definitely not a "heads-up" aircraft.

Roll control gets mushy at very low speeds and you drop pretty fast even with flaps so I get the impression that one is supposed to land at a relatively fast speed.

No manual is provided so there's a bit of "test piloting" to do in terms of flight characteristics and switches are somewhat tough to locate as a result.

Make sure you have the brakes firmly set when you start the engines as this thing definitely has a tendency to lurch forward.

Overall I'd give it a 4 of 5 star rating for VC users. 2D cockpit users may get a bit more frustrated though since access to switches is much more difficult and likely requires some keyboarding.
