The last command of Lt. Iwamoto, the 'Rei-sen 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. Fighters are additionally needed for Aircraft Carrier Cut-Ins (CVCI) during the day Shelling.


Any Improvement Improved the Zero Fighter Type 52 Model A (Iwamoto Squadron) may have will carry over to the Type 0 Fighter Model 53 (Iwamoto Squadron) given by quest F30.

Not to be confused with other aircraft of this family (see here).
