    Hello friends I need a bit of help with the wingspan of the B7A.

    Weapons and Warfare Vol.3 says it has 14.4m wingspan but when the wings are folded how much will the wing span be?

    From Wiki...

    "The B7A's outer wing panels were designed to fold upwards hydraulically for carrier stowage, reducing its overall span from 14.4 m (47 ft) to approximately 7.9 m (26 ft)."

    :oops:

    I underestimate the value of Wikipedia, I guess I've seen to many errors on it.

    I looked and....
    "Francillon, Ph.D., René J. Japanese Aircraft of the Pacific War. London: Putnam Company Ltd., 1979."

    I know is a good source but I have never got around to buying a copy. I am always being distracted by a multitude of other books to buy! :rolleyes:
    I think I will get it know.
