History of the Zero

The Mitsubishi A6M Zero was a lightweight fighter aircraft operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service (IJNAS) from 1940 to 1945. The origin of its official designation was that "A" signified a carrier-based fighter, "6" for the sixth such model built for the Imperial Navy, and "M" for the manufacturer, Mitsubishi. The A6M was usually referred to by the Allies as the "Zero"a name that was frequently misapplied to other Japanese fighters, such as the Nakajima Ki-43as well as other codenames and nicknames, including "Zeke", "Hamp" and "Hap".

When it was introduced early in World War II, the Zero was the best carrier-based fighter in the world combining excellent maneuverability and very long range.[1][2] In early combat operations, the Zero gained a legendary reputation as a "dogfighter" but by 1942, new tactics and techniques enabled Allied pilots to engage the Zero on more equal terms.[3] The IJNAS also frequently used the type as a land-based fighter. By 1943, inherent design weaknesses and the increasing scarcity of more powerful aircraft engines meant that the Zero became less effective against newer enemy fighters that possessed greater firepower, armor, and speed, and approached the Zero's maneuverability.[4] Although the Mitsubishi A6M was outdated by 1944, it remained in production. During the final years of the War in the Pacific, the Zero was utilized in kamikaze operations.

Nice and simple, yet very, very effective. This along with the Heinkel 111 are your best planes, in my opinion.

I like it. The fact it is almost studless makes it really smooth and overall shape looks nice. Great job

Hey David:), First one to comment, yay!:) This looks great, especially the shape of those wings and the gradual decrease of the tail! It has a very "clean", smooth look to it. Nice! Steffen
