Kards - The WWII CCG Wiki

A5M4 Claude is a Fighter Aircraft in Kards - The WWII CCG.


Mitsubishi A5M, from the aircraft carrier Akagi, ca 1938-39.

The Mitsubishi A5M was a Japanese carrier based fighter and the world's first monoplane shipboard fighter to enter service, and the predecessor of the famous Mitsubishi A6M "Zero". It was introduced in 1936 and was highly effective in the early stages of the Second Sino-Japanese War. Even though the aircraft was only armed with two 7.7 mm machine-guns, it proved effective and damage-tolerant, with excellent maneuverability and robust construction. Later in WWII the A5M's also provided much-needed escorts for the vulnerable Mitsubishi G3M bombers.
