Kanoya Ku Type 1 Rikko over Prince of Wales

To continue our exploration of the IJN "kumogata" theme James F Lansdale has kindly provided this contemporary artwork of a Kanoya Ku Type 1 Rikko flying over HMS Prince of Wales in December 1941.

Osamu Tagaya's "Mitsubishi Type 1 Rikko 'Betty' Units of World War 2", #22 in Osprey's Combat Aircraft series is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in this incident or Japanese naval bomber operations.
