NAKAJIMA B5N KATE / FG-1D CORSAIR
The Nakajima B5N2 ("Kate") was the sole shipboard torpedo-bomber of the Japanese Navy at the start of the Pacific War. Until around 1942, it out-performed any Allied ship borne torpedo bomber. The FG-ID Corsair served in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, Fleet Air Arm, and the Royal New Zealand Air Force, as well as the French Navy Aeronavale. The Corsair proved to be not only an outstanding fighter, but an excellent fight-bomber as well.
