Yokosho B3Y1 (Type 92 Carrier Attack bomber) / 九二式艦上攻撃機

A photo from a vintage publication of a B3Y1 operating during the opening stages of the 2nd Sino-Japanese War. The type was produced by Aichi (75), Watanabe(23) and Hirosho(about 30). The Aichi built planes had twin blade propellers while those produced by Watanabe and Hirosho were with 4-blade propellers, like the one in this photo.

I am completely unfamiliar with this wonderfully ugly biplane.'
Thanks for presenting it.

Great picture of a very interesting aircraft. I hope to modell it in the future.
