The call "Zero one five" over the inter-com of allied fighters usually signalled the beginning of a "fight to the death" air battle. This Japanese aircraft in various versions was used throughout the war from the time of Pearl Harbour to the end of the Pacific Campaign, as trainers, fighters, dive bombers, and eventually as suicide planes. The A6M2 was powered by a 952 h.p. Sakae with a maximum speed of 317 miles per hour. This plane carried a 20mm. cannon and two 7.7mm. machine guns. - Taken from the 1st edition catalogue (1962)
