The "Kayaba Ka-1 observation auto-gyro" was developed and used by the military.
This rotorcraft was used for anti-submarine patrol similar to modern ship-borne helicopters.
This aircraft can launch from landing craft and light carriers with full-length decks as well as from aviation cruisers and battleships with flight decks.


Rotorcraft are ASW Aircraft, being used to trigger some OASW and Land-based ASW attacks.

As they do not have any Dive Bombing Dive Bomber Attack stat, they do not participate to Phases 2 & 3 of Aerial Combat and are immune to shutdown. They:

  • Will launch during aerial battle if other planes are launched, but cannot start an aerial battle on their own.
  • CV/B/L equipped with them will still require a Dive Bomber Dive Bomber or a Torpedo Bomber Torpedo Bomber to attack submarines, as it is unable to attack anything without a bomber.
  • AS and Akashi can equip them, but the former cannot attack SS, and the latter has a carrying capacity of 0 so it does not function.
  • AO can equip them, but their attack animation will still be a depth charge animation.

Their LBAS Combat Radius cannot be extended.
