What is the Japanese fighter plane called?
I THINK ITS CALLED A ZERO
The names given to the Japanese a/c were code names assigned by the Allies that were easy to remember. The Allies codenamed the A6M2 as "Ben", then "Ray", and finally "Zeke". There were several variations of the Zero or Zeke and some had different names.
The A6M Zero is the most well known Japanese fighter, though the generic term for fighter aircraft was Sento-ki (I think).
Some other fighters were the N1K Shiden/George, Ki-61 Hien/Tony, Ki-100 Goshiki-sen, J2M Raiden/Jack, Ki-43 Hayabusa/Oscar, Ki-44 Shoki, Ki-84 Hiyate
