Type 21 “Rabaul”

When the Japanese attacked Rabaul in 1942, there was never any question of who the victors would be. The RAAF contingent on the island consisted of just fourteen outdated aircraft while the vessels sent against them could carry ten times that number. In a display of extreme courage, the RAAF launched its planes into the path of the Zeros attacking the island. In the following moments, the Zero’s effectiveness was proven beyond a reasonable doubt as the RAAF forces were obliterated.
