A6M5c Model 52 Zero fighters the mechanics
are running up the engines, before the pilots man their aircraft. The Zeros belong
the 252nd Air Group, the A6M5 was armed with
2x20mm cannons and 2x13.2mm machine guns mounted in the wings and 1x13.2mm machine gun in the upper fuselage decking.

Armored glass was installed behind the front windshield, and behind the pilot fuel tanks had automatic fire extinguishers.
In the hands of an experienced Japanese pilot
the Zero was still a deadly combat aircraft
despite improved Allied fighters late in the war.
