Description

AICHI TYPE 99 D3A ( Allied Code - name " Val " ) ( Japan )
First Flight : 1936 - 37 Two - seat carrier - based dive - bomber
Except for its Spitfire - like semi - elliptical wings, the Aichi D3A was far from beautiful ; but it achieved one of the greatest successes in air warfare when it spearheaded Japan's attack on the U.S. fleet at Pearl Harbour on December 7th, 1941, at the start of the Pacific War. It had been designed five years earlier to a Japanese naval specification, and a total of 478 of the original D3A 1 version were built before being superseded by the more powerful D3A 2 in August 1942. Production of the D3A 2 totalled 817, but its slow speed and light armament made it easy prey for Allied fighters in 1943 - 44.

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
John W.R. Taylor

John William Ransom Taylor O.B.E., Hon. D.Eng., F.R.Ae.S., F.R.Hist.S., A.F.I.A.A. ( June 8th, 1922 - December 12th, 1999 ) was educated at Ely Cathedral Choir School ( King's School, Ely ) and Soham Grammar School ( both in Cambridgeshire, England ).


He trained as a draughtsman and joined Hawker Aircraft in 1941. There he worked on the development of the Hurricane fighter and its successors. His specialisation was rectifying design defects.


He joined Jane's as Editorial Assistant on Jane's All the World's Aircraft in 1955 and four years later he took over as Editor. Until the late 1960's he edited this volume with virtually no editorial support but his love of aviation was such that this was a challenge he enjoyed.


He retired as Editor in 1989, just as the Iron Curtain obscuring the Soviet Bloc's technology started to lift. John W.R. Taylor, who lived to the age of 77, was a master of a parallel art to Kremlinology, he could deduce the performance of Soviet military equipment from blurred photographs.
