The last command of Lt. Iwamoto, the "Reisen Kotetsu", a carrier-based squadron equipped with "Type 53 Zero Fighters".
Improvements to the engines and airframe of the "Type 52" resulted in the new model "Type 53", it soars into battle piloted by skilled pilots.


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.
