The Nakajima B5N (Allied code name “Kate”) was a carrier-based torpedo bomber operated by the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. The B5N prototype was first flown in January 1937 and entered production soon after with the designation Type 97 Carrier Attack Bomber. It had a crew of three and featured a low mono wing that folded for carrier storage and retractable landing gear. The B5N2, with a more powerful engine and other modifications, began entering service in 1939. Although it was nearing obsolescence by 1941, the B5N was flown throughout the war, initially in front line service and later in secondary roles including training, target towing and anti-submarine warfare. By 1943 some B5N1s were being relegated to training at Usa Air Base on Kyushu.Realistic panel lines
