This carrier-based dive bomber is known by the codename 'Val' to the Allies, while the Japanese Navy terms it the 'Navy Type 99 Carrier Bomber Model 11'.
In service since 1939, it is easily recognizable through its fixed landing gear.
It is a highly maneuverable and stable airplane; indeed, it is so agile that it can serve as a dog-fighter if needs be. It is very popular with the pilots of the Kido Butai, and in training, they have achieved dive-bombing accuracy statistics exceeding 80%.
Dive 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 "Dive Bombing" 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).
- They are vulnerable to shut down during most Aerial Combat phases.
- They bring some accuracy bonus against PT Imp.
- They cannot attack Installations unless they are Anti-Installation Dive Bombers.
