Mitsubishi G4M "Betty"


The G4M was a versatile medium bomber with good speed and an impressively long range, but like most Japanese aircraft, was poorly protected. The lack of armor or self-sealing fuel tanks gave the Betty an unfortunate tendency to burst into flames whenever it was shot at, earning it the allied nickname of the "Flying Zippo."

Cool stuff for Betty lovers:

Just kidding!
