|Light Carrier||Standard Aircraft Carrier|
|Armored Carrier||Seaplane Tender|
|Submarine||Aircraft Carrying Submarine|
An improved version of an old carrier-based fighter aircraft. It is an outdated aircraft that was deployed in combat long before the Zero Fighter, but it possesses outstanding dogfighting capabilities.
While its armament and speed are already second-class, it can still be used for air defense.
Fighters/ 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" stat being the most important factor in this regard. Fighters are additionally needed for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI) during the day Shelling.

Around 2019-07-22, a bug was discovered that caused ships equipped with this plane to ignore target defense when performing ASW, allowing them to deal very high damage to enemy submarines. The suspected cause was that this plane was mistakenly set to use depth charge penetration (due to having adjacent IDs with Type 95 Depth Charge and Type 2 Depth Charge), which broke the sqrt calculation because its ASW stat is 0. This bug was fixed on 2019-08-08.
