What were the 3 types of planes that pearl harbor used to attack Japan?
Dive bombers, torpedo bombers, and fighter planes
No of course not. However the Americans did find out that Japan was going to attack them, but they didn't know when and where. They found this out by cracking the Japanese code, that was being sent through. Japan wanted the attack on Pearl Harbor to be a surprise, so the US would not be prepared to defend themselves. This is why the U.S. lost many men, planes and ships when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor…
No, the US received a peace medal from Japan before the attack so they thought that they wouldn't get into a war with Japan. Joe Lockard noticed planes on a radar but since they were expecting planes from the US to arrive with resources that same day, they did not alert Pearl Harbor. Hopefully that helped :)
You have some serious reading to do. Pearl Harbor did not attack Japan. The US Naval Base at Pearl Harbor HI was attacked by the Japanese on Dec 7, 1941. The American ships were tied up at their morring points in the harbor, and there had been no declaration of war. This was an unprovoked attack by Japan on the United States.
