About the Zero
The Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero was the Japanese Navy&39;s main fighter throughout the
Pacific Theater during WWII. In the latter half of the war, the model 52 Zero,
a refined version of the model 22, aimed to take on the ever increasing numbers
of high-performance U.S. aircraft. It featured a shorter 11m wingspan with rounded
wingtips, was powered by the same 1130hp Nakajima "Sakae" engine as
seen in the model 22 Zero, and had the new exhaust propulsion system which gave
it a 565km/h top speed. The A6M5 came armed with two 7.7mm machine guns and
20mm belt-feed type cannons on each wing. Deployment of the A6M5 began in the
autumn of 1943, and they saw action at the Solomon campaign as well as the Marianas.
It fearlessly defended Japan against overwhelming numbers and superior U.S.
aircraft up until the very last day of the war.
