On December 7, 1941, 350 Japanese aircraft, including several Zero A6M2b, made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor Bay, thus starting the War in the Pacific. The A6M2b was powered by a 940 hp Sakae 12 engine, which allowed it to reach top speeds of over 500 km/h, had a range of 3,000 km, and was armed with two 20 mm cannons in the wings and two 7.70 mm machine guns.
Its speed, range and maneuverability made this mythical aircraft one of the most feared and popular of its time.
