Volume One of Pacific Profiles presents detailed profiles and descriptions of Japanese Army Air Force aircraft and units operating in New Guinea and the Solomons from December 1942 to April 1944.
The Pacfic Profiles series presents the most accurate WWII aircraft profiles to date of Japanese aircraft in the "South Seas” theatre.
Volume One illustrates, by unit, Japanese Army Air Force aircraft operating in New Guinea and the Solomons from December 1942 to April 1944. In this theatre numerous different aircraft types and their variants were assigned to two dozen fighter, bomber and support air regiments which formed the Fourth Air Army. Unit insignia, camouflage and command markings varied from unit to unit, giving a wide variety of colour and markings. The profiles, based on photos, Japanese documents, technical reports and post-war wrecks, are accompanied by brief histories of the relevant units and explanations of their role in the theatre.
Never before have such accurate Japanese profiles been presented. Both authors are world-renown for their expertise in the field and have teamed up to provide matchless accuracy from this fascinating and esoteric component of the Pacific air war.
