A6M Zero was a long-range
carrier-based fighter aircraft operated by the Imperial Japanese
Navy Air Service (IJNAS) from 1940-45. It was designated as the
Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter, which led to its popular name 'Zero'
among both the Allies and the Japanese, who called it Rei-sen
('Zero'-sen). The official Allied reporting name was 'Zeke'.
With only modest power but a very light, strong alloy
airframe and fittings, the Zero had an excellent combination of
speed and manoeuvrability, plus a very long range. When it was
introduced, the Zero was considered the most capable carrier-based
fighter in the world, and by the time Japan's attack on Pearl
Harbor brought it into World War II, it was the primary Japanese
naval fighter in the Pacific arena. It was also deployed from land
bases. This beautiful model was made and produced in Japan.
