The modified variant of integrated dive-bombing attacker Ryuusei. It comes not only with its beautiful silhouette, but also a hydraulic-powered weapon bay door, landing gears and main wing folding gears, and world-class weaponry with 2x20mm and 2x7.7mm, plus 1x13mm rear-firing. It's up to you to bring it to success, Admiral.
Development requires at least 20 , 60 , 10 , 100 , with Bauxite as primary resource for a drop rate of 2%. Isolated reports exist of successful development with Ammo as primary resource with drop rate 1% or lower. No reports exist of successful development with Fuel/Steel as primary resource.
A stillborn advanced variant of the Aichi AM-23 Ryuusei (B7A2 Shooting Star), with its engine changed to the 2,200hp Mitsubishi MK9. It never progressed beyond the planning stage before the end of war, due to its base model's troubled development. Original B7A2 production models were equipped with a 7.92mm Type 1 rear-firing gun, which was changed to the 13mm machine gun in later production.
An experimental unit of the original production Aichi B7A2 was also equipped with a 2,000hp Nakajima Homare (Honor) Type 23 engine before the end of the war, but it is likely that the Ryuusei Kai refers to the never-produced MK9-powered B7A3.
