The other day on the History Channel I saw a WWII documentary of the Pacific War. In that documentary I saw a Japanese plane very similar to a zero but with larger wingspan and a different wing shape from the planes of the game. Then I remenber seeing the same plane In the TV series €œBlack Sheep Squadron€ (almost 20 years ago http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif). I€ve been searching on the net for a picture of this plane with no luck. So using some image editing program I draw the following picture.

You are probably referring to one of the American T-6 trainers that was "rebuilt" to look like a Zero for movie use. They were definitely used in the Black Sheep Squadron Tv series. See link:

well, a Boomerang "based" on the CAC Wirraway and that was less more than just a T6 with weapons http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
