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 It is an outdated aircraft that was deployed in combat long before the Zero Fighter, but it possesses outstanding dogfighting capabilities.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 defence.

Around 2019-07-22, a bug was discovered which caused ships equipped with this plane to ignore target defence 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.
