JNAF Units in China 1943-44

Hello

Does anyone knows if any JNAF landbased unit flew Hamps in China?
Otherwise any combat report reffering to Hamp during 1943-44 should be a wrong id for an JAAF Oscar. Any information is welcomed!

Kind regards
Dimitris

Dimitris.......have a look here, scroll down to the bottom for 1943-44 A6Ms in China . Some may have been A6M3 Hamps. I think the A6M2 Zeke would be more likely to be confused with an Oscar as both had rounded wingtips.
Regards
Nick

Hello,

Some IJNAF units operated A6Ms from Hainan Island during 1944.
See my site at http://surfcity.kund.dalnet.se/sino-japanese-1944.htm for some short references.

Best wishes/Håkan
