A new lightweight aluminum alloy developed in Japan was used and Horikoski chose to omit armor plate and self-sealing fuel tanks from the design. These protective devices weighed hundred of kilograms and could not be incorporated if Mitsubishi hoped to meet the performance requirements specified by the navy. Yet the lack of these components eventually became the Zero's undoing.

The Supermarine Spitfire Mk.9 is my favorite WWII A/C of all time. You can't beat the look of a 5-bladed propellor on an already kick-a** airplane.

I definitely agree with you there, about face, the Lightning was an excellent and very durable fighter.

I agree, the lightning is pretty durn cool lookin. Although, I think the German messerschmitt wins for the coolest name though. :P

I was torn between the P-51 and P-47. I eventually went with the better stats and history.

Topic: hurricane


the hawker hurricane is my fav fighter of ww2, and it could be fixed easier then the others because of the materials it was made of which meant you could get it back in the air quicker if it was shot up

Grumman F6F Hellcat would be my choice.
