Phiquoc

Relief map of Phiquoc

Phiquoc is an island off the south coast of what is now Cambodia. The Japanese built airfield here, at Duong Dong (103.97E 10.22N) and Kukan (Cua Can; 103.90E 10.30N), for short-range aircraft supporting the Malaya landings. When war broke out, 64 Air Regiment and 12 Air Brigade were based here with 35 Ki-43 "Oscar" and 146 Ki-27 "Nate". This was the first operational deployment of "Oscar" and represented the entire complement that had reached the front line by 7 December 1941.
