The Mitsubishi A6M "Zero" or "Zeke" is a Japanese fighter aircraft used in World War 2 by Imperial Japan, and featured in Medal of Honor: Rising Sun and Pacific Assault. At the start of the World War 2 the A6M was one of the best fighter planes and gained a legendary reputation. By 1944 the A6M became outdated and outclassed by the more advanced allied planes but the A6M remained in service. At the end of the war Japanese pilots adapted the A6M for Kamikaze tactics. The A6M was Japan's most produced fighter aircraft during the war.

Medal of Honor: Rising Sun[]

The A6M Zero is the main enemy in the first two missions along with the Nakajima B5N. and Aichi D3A, Most of the Zeroes are painted white but there are some which are painted green. Zero planes can be seen during the mission: Fall of the Philippines and the last mission: Supercarrier Sabotage. In the end of the last mission Griffin and Bromley used a Val dive bomber to escape from the supercarrier and several Zeroes chased them but Griffin successfully took them down. 

Medal of Honor: Pacific Assault[]
