Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Japanese military aircraft designation systems for the Imperial period (pre-1945) are rather difficult to keep track of, primarily because multiple designation systems were in use by each armed service. This is what led to the Allies' use of codenames during World War II, and these codenames are still better known in English-language texts than the real Japanese names for the aircraft. The confusion is not so much that any of the designation schemes are difficult, but that a number of different schemes were simultaneously in use.
