On December 7, 1941 Yoshio Shiga was flying Zero AII-105 and led nine aircraft from the carrier Kaga’s fighter divisions. Along with aircraft from Soryu and Hiryu, Shiga’s aircraft were assigned the task of eliminating aircraft based at Barbers Point Airfield. The Japanese claimed 60 aircraft destroyed with Lt. Shiga’s division claiming 15 of them. The U.S. claimed there were 47 various types of aircraft, which only 33 were operational. In April 1942 Shiga took command of aircraft carrier Jun’ yo’s fighter group. Shiga had 6 aerial victories in World War II.

The Mitsubishi A6M Zero was a fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service (IJNAS) from 1940 until 1945. The origin of its official designation was that "A" signified a fighter and "6" for the sixth model built by Mitsubishi "M". The A6M was usually referred to by the Allies as the "Zero" – a designation that was frequently misapplied to other Japanese fighters, such as the Nakajima Ki-43, as well as other codenames and nicknames, including "Zeke", "Hamp" and "Hap". First flown in April, 1939, the A6M Zero-Sen was the Allies' main opponent in the Pacific and the most famous symbol of Japanese air power during World War II.
