※ 本土防空の切り札、局地戦闘機「紫電改」の艦載機型、その改良型です。

※ This is an improved model of the carrier-based version of the interceptor aircraft "Shiden Kai", our trump card when it comes to our country's air defense.
It is an upgraded version that improved upon the Shiden Kai's engine, featured excellent dogfighting capabilities due to high-horsepower engines and the use of flaps, and was developed to fill in the spot that was reserved for its successor, the main fighter aircraft "Reppū", as its deployment got delayed.


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).
