Estimated Shipping: 2-3 Business Days
Incredibly fast at 469mph and incredibly powerfully armed with a quartet of 30mm cannon, the J7W had the potential to seriously curtail the B-29 raids on the Japanese home islands. However, only two prototypes were ever completed. It took its first flight on August 3, 1945, just days before its chief adversary-the B-29-dropped the ultimate checkmate weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The prototypes never saw combat. One was scrapped, the other brought to the US in crates.
