The "Reppuu" was a state-of-the-art carrier-borne fighter developed as the successor to the high-performance "Zero".
The "Reppuu Kai Ni" is an improved version of the Reppuu that uses the high-altitude interceptor "Reppuu Kai" as a base. The oblique-mounted guns have been removed and its effectiveness in dogfighting and anti-bomber roles has been increased.
This plane is equipped with the elite what-if fighter squadron of the 1st Carrier Division.

FightersFighterNight Fighter/Night Fighter are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to bring Air Power during the 1st Aerial Stage, with their "Fighter Power" Anti-Air stat being the most important factor in this regard. Fighters are additionally needed for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI) during the day Shelling.


Not to be confused with other aircraft of this family (see here).

The Mitsubishi A7M Reppū ("Strong Gale", Allied reporting name "Sam") was a naval fighter developed as a successor to the infamous A6M Zero.

The result of the 17-shi carrier-based fighter specification, the Zero's successor (then referred to as Navy Experimental Type 17 Type-A) was expected to be able to climb to 6 000 m in less than 6 min and then fly above that altitude at 639 km/h, all while carrying two 20 mm cannons and two 13 mm machine guns and retaining the A6M3's impressive maneuverability.

The Reppū's development was delayed due to development issues related to the engine and airframe, as well as production prioritizing other aircraft.

The A7M1 Reppū prototype finally flew in May 1944, demonstrating excellent handling and maneuverability but could not attain its lofty 640 km/h target due to the underpowered NK9 engine. The Navy ordered development stopped due to the failure, but Mitsubishi obtained permission to test the aircraft with the MK9 engine.

The A7M2 prototype flew in October 1944, achieving a top speed of 628 km/h while surpassing the Zero in many metrics, leading the Navy to officially adopt the type. Saburo Sakai declared it was the finest fighter he had ever seen, while engineers claimed it could fight at altitudes up to 12 km.

The Reppū was expected to replace the Zero as the standard fighter of the IJN, but production was disrupted due to earthquakes, Allied bombings, and the loss of schematics and manufacturing jigs. The Reppū subsequently never flew in combat.

The A7M3-J "Reppū Kai" was a proposed interceptor variant of the Reppū, with an increased maximum speed of 648 km/h using a 2 200 hp forced-induction version of the Mitsubishi MK9 and an armament consisting of six 30 mm cannons. No working prototype was ever produced, the design documents being lost in the bombings of March 1944.

The depicted plane is allegedly the A7M4 variant (did not exist/enter service as is).
