At the beginning of the Second World War, the Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter was considered to be the most capable carrier-based fighter in the world and was the envy of every naval air arm. Possessing exceptional levels of manoeuvrability and capable of operating over long distances, the light and speedy Zero proved to be the ideal fighter aircraft to support Japanese naval actions in the Pacific region. During early combat operations, Zero pilots were to enjoy spectacular successes, posting an almost unbelievable kill ratio of 12:1, as their aircraft proved to be the ultimate dogfighter, but this dominance was to be short lived. As America produced more capable naval fighters and their airmen developed more effective air combat tactics, the limitations of the Zero design began to show themselves. Avoiding the turning dogfight in favour of high speed slash and run attacks, US pilots found that the lightly armoured Zero offered little protection for either its pilots or its vulnerable fuel tanks and they began to take a withering toll of their once feared adversary.
