love the light you've placed upon Japanese aviation, is this in collaboration with assets from World of Warplanes team?

Best one so far, covering a baffling subject pretty well :cap_like:

'Baffling' is one way to put it. The divide between the branches was pretty insane in Japan at the time - I get the impression the political assassinations mentioned were half a step removed from all out civil war. My personal favourite anecdote is with regards to the Yagi-Uda directional antenna. Invented by the Japanese electrical engineers Shintaro Uda and Hidetsugu Yagi. It formed the basis of several advanced allied radar sets and was in use in the Japanese navy at the time.

 

The Japanese army only found out about it after they captured a set and an operator from the British.

Finally found the time to read this one, and it was well worth the wait! Very interesting aviation backstory, thank you.
