    During the Second World War, Mitsubishi manufactured military aircraft under the direction of Dr. Jiro Horikoshi. The Mitsubishi A6M Zero was a primary Japanese naval fighter in World War II.

Allied pilots were astounded by its maneuverability, and it was very successful in combat until the Allies devMitsubishi made use of forced labor during this tenure. Laborers included allied POWs, as well as Chinese and Korean citizens. In the post-war period, lawsuits and demands for compensations were presented against the Mitsubishi Corporation, in particular by former Chinese workers. On July 24, 2015, the company agreed to formally apologize for this wartime labor, and compensated 3765 Chinese laborers who were conscripted to Mitsubishi Mining during the war. On July 19, 2015, the company apologized for using American soldiers as slave laborers during World War II, making them the first major Japanese company to apologize for doing so.

    Good video. There isn’t enough info about Mitsu-Jeeps in the US. I have a ‘86 diesel J53 that’s a lot fun to drive. Looks and feels like a ‘50s Jeep with a lot more power and a few more modern features.
