How To Spot A Japanese Aircraft In WWII

Above is a handout used by the United States: for fliers and ground attack crew or simply public observation look-outs—to watch out for and identify the enemy aircraft used by the Japanese during WWII.

The images of each aircraft show a full frontal, bottom (I can see the landing apparatus located under the wings on the recon/observation aircraft) and side view of 30 different aircraft.

Up at the top left are the planes code-named Zeke… the Mitsubishi Zero, which was one of the most feared aircraft ever built - certainly so by the Japanese… a lightly armored fighter that was extremely quick and deadly.

Know your enemy, obviously, during WWII.

It also makes it much easier to NOT shoot one of your own side’s aircraft.
