ONSET Zero in the skies of Hawaii during the attack on Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, was not a surprise for the Americans, this device is already committed against China since July 1940. Despite this, U.S. pilots began some time to find a proper tactic in the fight against this car, a real snake in the air. It was impossible to bind a "dogfight" against zero turning and climbing better than the best of their planes! Indeed, until the end of the Pacific War, the device remained the most feared fighter, 500 km / h. he managed to pass a loop of 200 meters into the back of his opponent ... As against the Japanese fighter had a serious flaw: Designed as offensive machine that was sweeping all before him, it was with no shield. While a well-protected American fighter could endure terrible damage, the Zero, which is resistant to the most acrobatic man'uvres violent, a tear as tissue paper under the impact of projectiles. However, this remarkable device remained in Japanese history as the hunter most sensational of the 1940-1945 war! At the beginning of the war, the Zero was the first aircraft in the world to be fitted with an additional gas tank, droppable in flight. At the end of the conflict, it describes itself as Kamikaze suicide plane, on which the pilot was sacrificed to throw with a load of bombs on American vessels.


On 19 May 1937, the General Staff of the Imperial Navy published a specification describing a schematic successor to 12-Shi fighter board A5M; design competition presented by Mitsubishi was assigned to the team Jiro Horikoshi. The first prototype flew on 1 April 1939 and was propelled as a second engine Mitsubishi Zuisei 13 875 hp at 3 600 m.



On 14 September, the 12-unit Shi was accepted as fighter aircraft carrier type 0, ie Rei shiki sentoki Kanjo, abstract Rei-sen is the name that the History has chosen for the famous "Jap Zero" or code name "Zeke". The device also called A6m; first two prototypes were of AGMl, and the third a AGM2 it, powered by an engine Nakajima Sakae 12 950 hp at 4 200 m, flew on 18 January 1940. The Sakae engine model was chosen for mass production: a prototype additional 15 identical copies of pre (who fought in China from July 1940) and 48 copies of series were delivered as fighter aircraft carrier type O Model 11.

From 68 Rei-sen, had all copies of folding wing tips; 740 copies with this feature were built under the name Model 21 and the two versions were identical and armies of two 20 mm guns and two 7.7 mm machine guns. Another version, called A6M3, flew in June 1941: it did not end folding wing, which reduced its size by one meter, but instead had an engine Sakae 21 of 1130 horsepower off . 343 copies were built under the name Model 32 before returning to folding wings: production continued under the name Model 22 and Model 22-ko for devices equipped with a long-barreled: 560 additional copies were built in autumn 1942 to summer 1943
