This aircraft is capable of long-range cruising in the early days of the war.
Despite being unarmored and slow, it had a great operational range, and in the early days of hostilities was the main attack aircraft of the Carrier Task Force.
Called the Type 97 Attack Aircraft, it was mainly used for torpedo bombing of enemy ships, but was gradually phased out of that role.


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