The Shenyang J-6 (赤イ竹戦闘機 is a Akai Take Sentōki, lit. Red Bamboo Fighter)Chinese fighter jet, based on the Russian-built Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-19. A fleet of stolen J-6s was operated by the terrorist organization known as the Red Bamboo in the 1966 Godzilla film, Ebirah, Horror of the Deep.
History[edit | edit source]
After Godzilla defeated the Giant Condor, the Red Bamboo deployed a fleet of stolen Shenyang J-6s to combat him. The jets began firing on Godzilla with their weapons, but Godzilla wasn't injured by them, and fought back, grabbing some and crushing them. As the battle continued, Godzilla knocked several planes out of the sky with his tail, before shooting down the rest with his atomic breath.
