The above is incorrect. The Operations Office (Unyocho) has nothing to do with the Torpedo Officer. The operational department was derived from the navigation department.

It's a little complicated. Operations Officer (Unyocho) and Construction and Repair Officer (Kosakucho) were integrated into First Lieutenant (Naimucho) on 1 December 1943. And there is mistake in the officer name.
So;
Unyochos
LTJG (Res.) / LT (Res.) MASUSE Tadao 増瀬忠夫: 27 December 1941 - 1 December 1943
Naimuchos
LT (Res.) / LT (Res.) MASUSE Tadao 増瀬忠夫: 1 December 1943 - 5 December 1943
LT (Res.) / ??? NOMOTO Tadayuki 野元忠行: 5 December 1943 - ???
NO DATA
