The A6M2-N float plane version of the Zero did extremely well,suffering only a small loss in its legendary maneuverability.Top speed was not affected, however, the aircraft's relatively light armament was a detriment.

Spitfire "tipping-off" a V1. If you've never heard of this insane tactic ...... At first V1's were shot down by gunfire.With the high risk of being blown up, some of the best pilots started tipping the V1's wing. Because of damage towing tips, they later developed a tactic of disrupting the airflow by placing their wing very close to the V1's wing,causing it to topple. Not every pilot did this. At night this was not possible, the flame from the V1 blinded the pilotto everything else, though some Mossie pilots flew past closely in front of the V1, again causing it to topple. Thethought of doing this at 450mph, 4,000 feet above the ground, at night, and being blinded gives me the willies!
