History

Encyclopedia Info

In April of 1942, unveiled the launching of a new A6M model fighter. The main difference between the A6M3 model 32 and the A6M2 Model 21 was the new Sakae 21 engine (1130 hp), which had a two-stage supercharger making it more stable at higher altitudes and a propeller diameter of 3.05 m (150 mm greater than that of its predecessor). The engine was much heavier and longer than those used in previous models; the engine was moved closer to the cockpit to prevent displacement of the centre of gravity and reduction of the main fuel tank’s capacity from 518 to 470 litres.

Also, the folding wingtips were removed, which increased the plane’s dive speed limit but reduced its manoeuvrability and range. The latter side effect was particularly significant as it made it impossible to use the A6M3 effectively during the 1942 campaign in the Solomon Islands. Type 99-I model 3s guns replaced the current 20 mm cannons, and increase in ammunition amount to 100 rounds. Also, the aircraft could carry two 60-kg bombs.

A total of 343 A6M3 Model 32s were made for the Japanese navy.
