Carrier-based Type 52 Zero Fighters piloted by skilled pilots.
Type 52 was the last mass-produced model of the Zero Fighters and due to the development delays of its successors, it continued to be the backbone of the carrier fighter force.
The skills of the skilled pilots will cover for the technological inferiority.
Fighters/ are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to bring Air Power during the 1st Aerial Stage, with their "Fighter Power" stat being the most important factor in this regard.

The Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero (Type 0 Carrier-based fighter, Model 52, Allied reporting name "Zeke") is the final mass-production (and perhaps most effective) variant of the Mitsubishi A6M.
Compared to the A6M2, the A6M5 had shorter wings and revised control surfaces while an improved exhaust system and cowling increased power delivery. Carbon dioxide-based fire extinguishers were added while the radio was updated. The A6M5 had a number of incremental updates throughout its various manufacturing lots.
The maximum speed was increased to 565 km/h at 6,000 m and it could reach that altitude in just over 7 minutes. Subvariants include the A6M5c, while the A6M6 and A6M7 (Model 62) were adapted from the A6M5.
