This mid to late-war successor to the Zero suffered from a bad engine like so many other late-war Japanese planes. Still, when it was flying, it was a formidable opponent for U.S. aviators.
Book features the newly-restored Champlin aircraft as well as the U.S. Air Force Museum's plane and Pensacola's to give you over 150 full-color detail photos and dozens of technical illustrations and diagrams covering all variants. Historical photos of the Shiden-kai in action, too. All text and captions in both English and Japanese. 72 pages. 26 x 25.5cm format. Soft-cover with dust jacket.
