|Japanese Military Airplanes|
This page covers model airplanes of the Japanese Military Aircraft, both fighters and Bombers of World War 2.There are many Jap fighters and Jap bombers shown on this page. The A6M Japanese Zeros model airplanes of the Jap zeros showing Japanese airplanes at their best, the Jap zero was the most well know of all Japanese aircraft.
The World War 2 A6M Jap Zero is one of the most famous of the Japanese airplanes. This Japanese zero military aircraft is one that attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec 7th, 1941. This aircraft is one of the historic airplanes and would be a great addition to your historic airplane collections. These Japanese airplanes out climbed, out gunned and out maneuvered the American fighter aircraft. However, the Jap Zero was built to be very light and agile.
To do this the design didn't include self sealing tanks, armor around the tanks, armor around the pilot or engine and didn't build the aircraft to withstand the maximum aerodynamic forces. This made the Zeros very easy to shoot down, as many American Pilots attest. One famous battle was the Marianas Turkey Shoot.
Please Note: The specifications on this page are only for a single model of this airplane.

Aichi D3A1 Val
Val became the first aircraft to drop bombs on American targets at Pearl Harbor.
Six squadrons of Vals participated in the attack, and succeeded in doing
extensive damage to the U.S. battleships in the harbor. The Val proved to be an
accurate and effective dive bomber in the opening stages of the Pacific War. It
was as maneuverable as many fighters and proved this during dogfights with early
allied Pacific fighters such as Wildcats. As allied fighter opposition
developed, the Val soon proved to be a vulnerable opponent. Slow and poorly
defended, the Val was obsolete by 1943. It did continue to serve, seeing service
later as kamikaze weapon.
Aichi D3A1 "Val" Dive Bomber The Aichi D3A (Allied code name "Val") was a
World War II dive bomber produced by the Aichi Company in Japan. It was the
primary carrier-borne dive bomber in the Imperial
The Aichi dive bomber that flew from the Imperial Japanese Navy carrier Soryu during the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor. It carried a 250kg bomb under the fuselage.
The Aichi was a carrier-borne bomber responsible for bombing the first targets at Pearl Harbor. Known as the Val to the Allies, the D3A1 had a tapered elliptical wing for aerodynamic efficiency. The plane was built with a Kinsei 44 radial engine

From the Webmaster: In looking at these two types of D4Y4 Japanese Fighters, they mention that it has a unique V-12 engine, but when you look at the pictures of the planes, you will see that it came with two versions of the fighter, one with the V-12 and the other with a Radial Engine. So the descriptions from the manufacturers aren't always correct.

Role Medium Range Bomber
The Mitsubishi G4M Isshikirikko or the type 1 land-based attack bomber, was built to a range-at-all-cost specification. In order to compensate for the inferior fleet strength restricted by the London and Washington Treaties, the Imperial Japanese Navy intended to support their naval operations from shore based aircraft. The Betty Bomber had high aspect ratio wings and fat cylindrical fuselage which were characteristics of this aircraft.

The Aircraft's Specifications
The MITSUBISHI ARMY TYPE 97 HEAVY BOMBER Ki-21 was better known in the West as the SALLY. Designed to a 1936 Imperial Japanese Army Air Force requirement and entering operational service in 1939, the SALLY saw combat action throughout the war despite inadequate armament and armor protection. When production ceased in September 1944, over 2,000 Sally's had been built, and like many Japanese aircraft, ended the war serving as a Kamikaze platform.

|Nakajima Ki-27 "Nate"|
The star performer in the aviation portion of the Manchurian incident of the late '30's, this was about the best fighter of the time. This 'little Japanese fighter was probably one of the very best in the world at the time it was first built in 1937. It was a classic low wing, fixed gear, light weight, highly maneuverable design. In addition, in service it was painted up in what would appear to be very attractive color schemes.
"In 1935, the Japanese Army held a competition between
Nakajima, Mitsubishi, and Kawasaki to design a low-wing monoplane to replace the
Kawasaki Ki-10 (Type 95 Fighter) biplane. The results were Nakajima Ki-27,
Kawasaki Ki-28, and Mitsubishi Ki-33. Nakajima's design was based on its earlier
Ki-11 monoplane fighter which lost to Ki-10 in the Type 95 Fighter competition,
and Ki-27 was designed by Koyama Yasushi to have air-cooled radial engine and
fixed landing gear.
1st Sentai commander Toshio Kato
A largely forgotten war was waged between the Russians and Japanese in Mongolia. At the outset of the war, the Ki27 outclassed everything the Russians had in the area. Many of Japan's fiercest aces downed their first opponents at the battle of Khalkhin Gol while flying the Ki27. The Japanese ended up losing the battle but wreaked tremendous havoc on the Russian Air Forces, claiming a total of 1,340 kills.Tigers Claws

|Kawasaki Ki-45 Toryu "Nick"|
Ki-45 "Nick" Everything
The Ki-45KAIb was specifically developed as a ground attack aircraft, hence the 20mm nose cannon in addition to the 37mm ventral cannon. This relatively heavy forward firepower made it perfect for hunting PT boats or intercepting 5th AF Liberators.
The top speed was 340 mph, range about 1,400 miles and a little over 1,700 aircraft were built. One was experimentally fitted with a 75mm cannon, but it proved too much for the light airframe of the Ki-45.
Kawasaki's Ki-45 Toryu or, "Nick" as it was known to the allies. There were about 1700 of the airplanes built which served the Japanese Army from mid-1942 until the end of hostilities in 1945. The aircraft was unusual for the Japanese in 1942 in that in had protected fuel tanks and was fairly well armed...the Kai Koh version had two nose mounted 12.7mm Type 1 (Ho-103) machine guns and 7.9mm Type 98 gun on a flexible mount firing from the rear crew station. Its real punch came from a 20mm cannon that was mounted in the belly which was put to good use in anti-shipping sorties. Armament and engines were improved on throughout the Ki-45's production run though its flight performance as a fighter was less than spectacular. The twin-engine Ki-45 was designed to carry a heavy armament on long-range missions. They were clumsier than single engine fighters, but a 37 mm cannon made them highly effective against bombers. One of the air groups deployed by Japan shot down eight B-29s on its first mission. The Ki-45 took a heavy toll of bombers, ships and men before becoming obsolete as more single-engine fighters arrived with American carriers.
The Ki-45 served with the 1st Company, 5th Chutai apparently in home defense duties. The origins of the Kawasaki Ki-45 are interesting, as it was a plane that almost wasn't. There were all sorts of problems much of them relating to tail flutter and lack of general stability. There was also a lack of power from the chosen engines. As this aircraft was also being developed concurrently with the Ki-48 and using many of the same components, similar problems cropped up with the Ki-48. Eventually the airframe was modified and more powerful engines used bring the aircraft up to specifications. In the 1930s, when many nations were looking at twin engined designs for fighters, Kawasaki followed the pack with their original Ki-45 design. The performance was severely lacking, and while this initial design was rejected, the Japanese government did provide suggestions for improvement. Kawasaki wisely decided to hand the project off to Doi Takeo, the designer who came up with the successful Ki-48 bomber. The result was a significant departure from the original Ki-45, and the Ki-45kai exceeded the IJA specifications.

The Imperial Japanese Army Air Force’s NAKAJIMA ARMY TYPE 4 FIGHTER (also identified as the Ki-84) was better known in the West as the FRANK and was held in high regard by the American pilots who fought against it. Designed to combine the maneuverability of the earlier Ki-43 Hayabusa with upgraded performance to match the best western fighters, the heavily-armed Ki-84 first flew in March 1943. Although the design was solid, the shortage of fuel and construction materials, poor production quality, and lack of skilled pilots prevented the fighter from reaching its potential. A total of 3,514 were produced.

Japanese Propaganda Art Exhibit
Propaganda Art was used by forces on all sides in
WW2 as well as all wars in history. This kind of art gave pride to the
citizens of those countries who produced it and gave a unity in support
of the wars. This exhibit is an excellent example of Japanese
Mitsubishi F1M-2 Pete Seaplane. The Type-O seaplane was a biplane designed to a Japanese Navy requirement for an observation and reconnaissance aircraft, also capable of defending itself when faced with fighter opposition. Used throughout WWII, it was successfully used to hunt and destroy enemy submarines in addition to its reconnaissance tasks.
the Imperial Japanese Kawanishi H8K EMILY Flying Boat. Used for maritime
patrol duties, the H8K entered production in late 1941 and first saw operational
use on the night of March 4, 1942 staging a second raid on Pearl Harbor. Since
the target lay out of normal range for the flying boats, this audacious plan
involved a refueling by submarine en route at French Frigate Shoals – an overall
mission distance of almost 5,000 miles. Incredibly, two EMILYs actually made it
to Hawaii and bombed the island of Oahu! The improved H8K2 variant soon
appeared, and its extremely heavy defensive armament earned it the nickname
"Flying Porcupine" among Allied aircrews. This was to be the definitive variant,
with 112 produced, and they were used on a wide range of patrol, reconnaissance,
bombing, and transport missions throughout the Pacific war. Nearly 40 examples
of a dedicated transport version, the H8K2-L, were also built, capable of
carrying 62 troops. Overall, a total of 167 EMILYs were produced, and only four
survived until the end of the war.
