Revisions to
CinCPac - CinCPOA Bulletin 105-45





Introduction

Since the publication of Japanese Operational Aircraft (CINCPAC-CINCPOA Bulletin No. 105-45) which was issued as an enclosure to Weekly Intelligence, Vol. 1, No. 44, certain revisions have been necessary. This pamphlet is being issued so that the manual previously distributed may be brought up to date.

The 22 pages which follow contain changes in silhouettes or photographs of Japanese planes. These pages should be substituted for correspondingly numbered pages in the original publication. (It will be noted that each of the new pages carries the date July 1945, indicating the time of revision).

Revisions in the text of certain other pages of the original publication also should be made as follows:
