※The swift carrier-based reconnaissance plane "Saiun" that sent the famous telegraph "No enemy plane can catch us!".
This sophisticated carrier-based reconnaissance plane boasts a high speed that does not allow enemy fighter planes to pursue them.
As the war took a turn for the worse it took off into the vast sea in order to scout the enemy's movements.
This "Saiun" has been transported to the Truk base as part of Operation "Hikari".
The "Saiun" planes of the East Caroline Air Group at said base play a large role in scouting the Ulithi Atoll anchorage.
