The sale of around thirty Heinkel He112B fighters to Japan in 1938 was known to the Allies, and the type was codenamed as "Jerry". The name was dropped when the A7He1 was not met in combat. Unacceptable to the Japanese, the remaining aircraft had all been turned over to aeronautical trade schools prior to Pearl Harbor. It is included here only because it had an Allied codename attached to it. (Source: "World War Two Japanese Aircraft from A to Z" published in Air Progress magazine, July 1964)
