Nakajima

Nakajima was a primary manufacturer of aircraft for the Japanese military prior to and during World War II. Among its prominent designs was the Ki-43 Peregrine Falcon, code named Oscar by the Allies, the foremost fighter aircraft of the Japanese Army during the war, and the B5N Type 97 carrier attack bomber, code named Kate by the Allies. After World War II, Japanese aircraft production was limited, and the company closed. Nakajima later reemerged as Fuji Heavy Industries and Fuji Precision Industries. Among its best known brands today is the Subaru automobile line.
