Limited production of approximately 500 models worldwide

On December 7, 1941 this aircraft, A6M2 Zero c/n 5349, was flown by flight leader PO 1st Class Tsugio Matsuyama. It was assigned to the aircraft carrier Hiryu and took part in the raid on Pearl Harbor. On that day 8 A6M2 Zeros from the Hiryu strafed Kaneohe and Bellows Field destroying trucks and airplanes. Next they joined the air battle and Matsuyama shot down U.S. defender aircraft. Out of 384 U.S aircraft on the ground 188 were destroyed and 159 damaged with Japan losing 15 aircraft.

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.
