Identification of the Japanese Fighters 96 and 97

USAAF Training film on identification of the Japanese Fighters 96 (Mitsubishi A5M Claude Type 96) and 97 (Nakajima Ki-27 Type 97).

Notable for inaccurately claiming that both are the same aircraft, and that it is a copy of the Boeing P-26 – an example of the poor intelligence that the Allies had of Japanese aircraft during the early part of the war.
