1/48 Nakajima B6N1 Bomber Limited Edition

1/48 Nakajima B6N1 Bomber Limited Edition

Carrier attack bombers of the 601st Naval Air Group

"Jill" torpedo bombers were introduced in 1943 as a replacement for the B5N "Kate". The 601st NAG flew "Jills" at the Battle of the Philippine Sea, Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Although they were faster and more maneuverable than B5Ns, B6Ns were still no match for American carrier-based fighters who had long before achieved near-total air superiority in the Pacific. Losses were so high among the aircraft that there is only one known example still in existence.
