Aichi D1A1 - Yokosuka Ku

Two photos from a vintage publication featuring a formation of Type 94 Carrier Dive-bombers or Aichi D1A1 belonging to the Yokosuka Kokutai. Overall NMF with red tails. The main differences between the D1A1 and the D1A2 were the larger windshield and the more powerful engine, Hikari 670hp, of the later as opposed to the Kotobuki 460hp of the former. Otherwise, except for the spats the D1A2 had, they were externally similar and very difficult to tell apart.
