Description Extended Information
 
Marushin MARS012 Imperial Japanese Army Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden "Jack" Interceptor - 352 Kokotai, Okinawa, 1945 (1:48 Scale) "We have resolved to endure the unendurable and suffer what is insufferable."
- Japanese Emperor Hirohito speaking to the Japanese people after the atomic bombings, August 1945

The Mitsubishi J2M "Raiden" ("Thunderbolt") was a single-engine, land-based fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Navy in World War II. The Allied codename was "Jack".

The J2M was designed by Jiro Horikoshi, creator of the Mitsubishi A6M "Zero". It was strictly a local-defense interceptor intended to counter the threat of high-altitude bomber raids, and thus relied on speed, climb performance, and armament at the expense of maneuvrability. The J2M was a sleek but stubby craft with its oversized Mitsubishi Kasei engine buried behing a long cowling, cooled by an intake fan and connected to the propeller with a long extension shaft. Pilot visibility was poor.

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale replica of an Imperial Japanese Army Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden "Jack" interceptor that was operated by the 352 Kokotai, then deployed to Okinawa during 1945. Sold Out!
