In the Beaufighter-campaign you regulary encounter Mitsubishi A6M Zero's. In the after briefing the codename is sometimes "HAMP" and other times "ZEKE". Is there a difference between these two planes like the version?

Hap is the A6M3 with the clipped wing tips that was originaly misidentified as a completely different aircraft design. The pane was originally called Hap in honor of General Henry Hap Arnold. Arnold didn't like have a Japanese plane named after him so it was changed to Hamp.
