This aircraft is capable of long range cruising in the early days of the war.
Despite being unarmored and slow, it had a great operational range, and at the early days of hostilities was the main attack aircraft of the Carrier Task Force.
Called the "Type 97 Attack Aircraft", it was mainly used for torpedo bombing of enemy ships, but was gradually phased out of that role.
