Would it be possible to get a rating for the A7M2? I'm interested to see how it holds up, given the -1's somewhat lackluster performance. Saburo Sakai seems to have had a high opinion of it and believed that it was a mistake for development resources to be concentrated on the N1K-J instead of the A7M, but so far the numbers don't bear out his opinion. (He also said it was the fastest fighter he'd ever seen, which is odd considering the Shiden itself was a bit faster - and at 390 mph it would be seriously outpaced by Corsairs and Mustangs - so that's subjective opinions for you.)

It came out to 119.29. This isn't at all bad considering the Japanese were flying on poor-quality 87 octane gas. Give it American gas and the result may have been substantially higher.
