In most cultures owning and bearing arms was considered the right and privilege of the free man. Naturally the greatest care and skill had to be given to their technical manufacture because this was literally a matter upon which life and death depended. In addition, beauty of functional form and often precious decoration of weapons combined to make them the jewelry of the free man. Sixteenth-century parade armor was indeed the most extensiveand expensivebody jewelry ever designed. Because of this interaction of emotional, historical, and aesthetic values, arms have long been coveted objects of collecting, as shown for instance in the Tale of the Fight for the Arms of Achilles.
The weapon as such is neither good not evil but a document and indispensable part of the history of mankind. Aside from their importance in cultural history, arms have a considerable role in art history too. Many outstanding artists such as Hand Holbein, Albrech D?rer, and Leonardo da Vinci made designs for arms that were functional as well as decorative. As a work of art, a complete armor of the fifteenth or sixteenth century is a moving sculpture, and at the same time it often represents the corporeal image of a historically important person.

Although seen as a replacement for the A6M Zero-sen carrier-based fighter, the Mitsubishi J2M Raiden was actually designed as a land-based naval interceptor optimised for speed rather than manoeuvrability. Engine cooling problems for its Mitsubishi Kasai 23 engine, airflow and flight control issues plagued the Raiden's development, but despite these production delays, aces Sadaaki Akamatsu Yoshihiro Aoki, Susumu Ito and Susumu Ishihara all claimed significant scores in the Raiden. Kawanishi's N1K family of fighters were privately developed by the manufacturer from the N1K Kyofu floatplane fighter. Again plagued by structural and engine maladies, the N1K1-J Shiden eventually entered frontline service in time to see considerable action in the doomed defence of the Philippines in October 1944. Despite suffering heavy losses, the units equipped with new fighter proved that the N1K could more than hold its own against P-38s and F6Fs. The improved N1K2-J Shiden-KAI started to reach the frontline by late 1944 - in time for defence of the Home Islands. Here, it proved to be the best IJN fighter of the war.
