The first A6M5 Zero was build by the Mitsubishi Jukogyo in 1943. It came about as the Allies built heavier armed fighters that were knocking the Zero out of the sky during 1943. The Nakajima NK1 F Sakae 21 engine gave the plane slightly better performance, and the armament was changed to 2 20mm and 2 132mm guns. These changes did not make up for the lack of armor, or the lack of self-sealing fuel tanks,  Despite these shortcomings, over 10,450 were built, being used during the entire war due to the fact that other models of aircraft were having teething problems.
