Introduction

「我ニ追イツク敵機無シ」。敵戦闘機の追随を許さない高速性を誇る俊足の高性能艦上偵察機「彩雲」。
「彩雲」は悪化した戦況の中、敵情偵察に海上へと飛び立ちました。同機を装備した偵察第四飛行隊は、捷一号作戦正面のレイテ方面偵察、またその後は紫電改集中装備部隊「三四三空」の眼として活躍しました。

"No enemy fighter can catch us." The Saiun was a high-performance carrier-based reconnaissance plane - the high speed of its brilliant design ensured no enemy fighter could keep pace with it.
The Saiun flew over the sea reconnoitering enemy movements as the war situation turned grim. The 4th Reconnaissance Squadron, equipped with these very planes, scouted out Leyte during Operation Sho I; afterward, they continued to play an important role as eyes for the 343rd Naval Air Group, which mainly flew the Shiden Kai.
