Mitsubishi F1M2 Model 11 type 0 "Pete" Timeline

 

Late 1934: The Japanese Navy issued a 10-Shi specification outlining requirements for a short-range observation

     seaplane intended to replace the Nakajima E8N1 "Dave".

 

June 1936: 1st flight of the F1M1. A strong tendency to porpoise on the water and inflight directional instability was

     predominant.

     Engine: Makajima Hikari 1: 820 hp.

     Wings: Leading edge was elliptical in shape.

 

August 1938: The F1M2 passed official acceptance trials and was ordered into production.

     Engine: Mitsubishi MK2 Zuisei 13: 875 hp.

 

1941: The F1M2 entered service with the Imperial Japanese Navy participation in most major campaigns operating

     from shore basis and seaplane tenders.

 

June 1942: A fighter squadron of F1M2s is formed on Attu in the Aleution Islands.

 

Note: Its exceptional maneuverability and good climb rate resulted in its use as a fighter in the Philippines, New

     Guinea and Solomons areas.

     Unique among Japanese naval aircraft, it was the only type in the observation seaplane class to be

accepted for quantity production. Originally designed for short-range observation, its exceptional

maneuverability led to its use as an interceptor, fighter, dive-bomber, convoy escort and coastal patrol

aircraft. It held a commendable record in all rolls it participated in.
