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.
