Product Description

The A6M3 Type 22 was actually built after the clipped wing Type 32. Thanks to the additional power of the sake 21 engine over the previous Sakae 12, the sake 21 did not have the same fuel consumption as the earlier version. To add to that, the new engine was longer so the forward fuselage fuel tank had to be reduced in size. This meant that the Type 32 was decidedly down on range. Thanks to the clipped wing, it also did not have the ceiling or Rate of climb of the earlier A6M2 Type 21, though it was faster and did have a greater roll Rate. To counter that, the Type 22 reinstated the wing extension and also had increased fuel tankage added to the wings to make up for the thirstier engine and the loss of fuselage fuel stowage. Several Type 22S had long barrelled cannon fit into the wings at least one was field tested with wing mounted 30mm cannon. Though not built in the kind of numbers that the later Type 52 was, the Type 22 served well during the middle years of the War and was the Mount of many a jnaf ace.
