The Mitsubishi A6M2 was one of the best fighters in the initial period of World War II. The Navy Deck Fighter Model 0 had no official name. The number 0 represents the end of the year 2600 (on the Japanese calendar) in which the aircraft was designed. Hence the popular term "Zero" invented by the British. The aircraft was designed by engineer Jirō Horikoshi in 1940 on the oder of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The model was constantly modified during the war.
The machine was characterized by high speed and maneuverability. These features, amount others, were achieved at the expense of armor. A total of about 11,000 copies of this aircraft in various versions were produced.
