The Zero and the Ki-84 will be the choice mount of many FB pilots,myself included.

I got to see that Zero fly once at Wings Over Houston. Nice airplane. Very pretty up close/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif . Didn't get to see in its cockpit though /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif .

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.
