  • HISTORY ASPECTS:
  • The Polikarpov I-16 Type 10, piloted by the 5-Victory Ace Luo Ying Te of the Republic of China (Taiwan) Air Force, holds a remarkable place in history for its service during the Sino-Japanese War. This conflict, which raged from 1937 to 1945, was a critical theater of World War II, with the Republic of China fighting against the Japanese Empire's expansionist ambitions in Asia.
  • Luo Ying Te, a skilled pilot and ace, achieved five confirmed victories while flying the Polikarpov I-16 Type 10. The I-16, known as the "Rata" to the Soviets and "Mosca" to the Spanish Republicans, was one of the world's first low-wing cantilever monoplanes with retractable landing gear. Its agility and speed made it a formidable opponent in dogfights against Japanese aircraft.
  • In the hands of aces like Luo Ying Te, the I-16 played a vital role in defending Chinese airspace and striking back at Japanese forces. Luo Ying Te's victories, symbolized by the markings on this aircraft model, serve as a testament to the bravery and determination of the Republic of China's pilots during this challenging period in history.
  • Now, you can own a meticulously crafted 1:72 scale, paying tribute to the resilience of the Republic of China Air Force during the Sino-Japanese War. Display it with pride and honor the legacy of those who defended their homeland against overwhelming odds.
