Curtiss P-40 Warhawk

Best ads 0
In the Philippines, as in Hawaii, attrition was high -- 26 P-40s were destroyed on December 8, 1941, mostly because they were caught on the ground. Although initially shocked by the startling performance of the Zero fighters that faced them, the four squadrons of P-40s put up a gallant struggle against the Japanese invaders. The first USAAC ace of World War II was 1st Lt. Boyd D. Wagner, a P-40E pilot of the 17th Squadron, 24th Pursuit Group, in the Philippines. During a surprise attack on the Japanese army's 50th Sentai, newly arrived at Aparri airfield on December 12, Wagner was attacked by four Nakajima Ki.27 fighters. He evaded two, then suddenly cut his throttle to make the other two overshoot him and shot down both. After strafing five to seven Japanese planes on the ground, Wagner was attacked by three more Ki.27s but managed to shoot down two of them and then escaped. He was subsequently awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, as was 1st Lt. Russell M. Church, Jr., who was shot down in flames and killed by anti-aircraft fire in the course of the raid.

World War 2 - The Dreaded Stuka Dive Bombers

Best Review 9000
The most famous Sturzkampfflugzeug (dive bomber) was the one nicknamed Stuka. It was the most famous of all planes used by the Germans as a divebomber. The Stuka bomber was designed strictly as an army cooperation divebomber at the urging of General Ernst Udet. It is instantly recognisable with its inverted gull-wings, and fixed-undercarriage.

Zero Fighter ( Kamikaze weapon of World War 2 )

Best Review 9000
When the tides of war favored the allies, Japan was desperately making plans to gain their supremacy back when their losses started to mounting. Kamikaze planes or well- known to the U.S. seamen who witnessed their horrific acts, as Flying Coffins, dreadfully crashed their planes toward Allied ships, which then causes a terrible number of casualties.
