Where/How do I get the US Zero?

I can't seem to remember: Where (or how) did the player get the US A6M5 Zero captured unit as reward?
Thanks! :)

There’s this message in Guadalcanal USA but it doesn’t say we’ll get the US zero captured plane :

At least it's available as an unit in the editor. I'm really bad with unit's names, so I thought maybe I had forgotten about it, but maybe it was forgotten by the devs instead? :wink:

Possibly deleted during the Beta (which I had not participated in :? ) ?

Maybe Okinawa? I can't check the specifics right now but seem to remember there was a possibility to capture airplanes?

A6M5 is certainly a later version.

I see, thx. If there is no other instance for this - it might have been contemplated to give them during dev, but not been implemented finally, so could be just WAD.

I'm not saying this is a bug, it's rather a real pity if left unused; there are a couple of units (and mechanics) not used within OoB, although implemented okay.

So how about making use of it now somehow? 8)
