Blood Red Skies: Aichi D3A 'Val' & Nakajima B5N 'Kate' Squadron

The Aichi D3A ‘Val’ was a dive bomber and the Nakajima B5N ‘Kate’ was a torpedo bomber. Coordinated strikes from these two aircraft redefined the future of naval aviation and brought about the end of the battleship.

A naval dive bomber with many similarities to the German Ju 87 Stuka, the Aichi D3A Dive Bombers or "Val" was armed with two fixed forward machineguns and two rear trainable ones. It carried a crew of two and a light bomb load.  To make way for the slower torpedo bombers, they were mainly used to cripple the anti-aircraft capabilities of the targeted ship.

Best remembered for their involvement on the attack on Pearl Harbor, the "Val" was a mainstay of the Japanese carrier-based war effort.

Although the Nakajima B5N of 'Kate' preformed favorably to its Allied counterparts at the start of its involvement in the war, it was already becoming obsolete by 1941. It still served throughout the entirety of the war due to the delayed development of its intended successor, the B6N. It had a 3-man crew, pilot, navigator/bombardier/observer, and radio operator/gunner.
