    The Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka was a rocket powered human-guided anti-shipping kamikaze attack plane, using as a platform, the bomber Mitsubishi G4M Betty. The following link shows a report and some photos this weapon, employed by Japan towards the end of World War II:

    The OHKA inventor survived the war.
    Changed his name, he even received pension.
    He died at 82 in 1994.

    Thanks for sharing, pampa14 :)
