From the little info I had on this aeroplane it seems that it equipped the 752, 601 and Yokosuka Kokutais. The aircraft statistics talk about a very capable torpedo/bomber, and one can think that, in some numbers, in good hands and in a different strategic situation, it would have been a very dangerous opponent. just about a 100 were produced so just a few would have been operational.
Does exist any good account about operational experience, any interesting raid, any exploit?
