航空母艦「Ark Royal」搭載の本機は、戦艦「Bismarck」と英艦隊との激闘に大きな一撃を放ちます。旧式ながら赫々たる戦果をおさめた傑作機、遂に実装です!

A carrier-based torpedo bomber from the country of black tea that is named after the swordfish and boasts a high reliability and serviceability even though it belongs to an old generation of biplanes that aren't fully metallic.
This bomber was carried by the aircraft carrier "Ark Royal" and unleashed a devastating strike during the fierce battle between the battleship "Bismarck" and the Royal Navy Fleet.
Now this masterpiece that, while outdated, has accomplished outstanding feats, has finally been implemented!


Torpedo BombersTorpedo BomberNight Torpedo Bomber/Night Bomber are one of the main types of plane used by CV(B/L). Their main role is to do damage during the Airstrike, with their "Torpedo" Torpedo Attack stat being the most important factor in this regard. Torpedo Bombers are additionally needed for dealing damage during day Shelling, especially for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI).

Night Aircraft are planes that contribute to Carrier Night Air Attack damage.


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