Takumi Hoashi was one of the Zero pilots launched during the first wave attack on Pearl Harbor from the aircraft carrier Shokaku on December 7, 1941. His mission, along with others, was to strafe Bellows Field. Hoashi and his wingman claimed 3 aircraft destroyed on the ground. Hoashi held the rank of Buntaicho (usually a Lieutenant commanding a division) from November 1941 until June 1942. Hoashi was killed in June 1943 when the second prototype of the J2M2 Raiden he was flying crashed and burst into flames.

Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero-Sen/Zeke

First flown in April, 1939, the A6M Zero-Sen was the Allies' main opponent in the Pacific and the most famous symbol of Japanese air power during World War II. This carrier-based fighter, designed with a low-monoplane wing and armed with a formidable array of two 20mm cannons and two 7.7mm machine guns, proved capable of handling any of the Allies' aircraft. It wasn't until the Allies studied a captured Zero that they were able to identify and exploit weaknesses such as minimal pilot and fuel tank protection. Zeros became infamous for Kamikaze attacks, in which pilots would intentionally crash explosion-laden aircraft into Allied ships.
