    For references as a basic knowledge, there was no Kumagaya aircraft factory but Kumagaya factory of Nakajima Aircraft as a parts maker.
    P1Y was manufactured at Koizumi factory for the navy.

    There was another Nakajima's factory called Ohta factory for the army.
    Both factories were located side by side.

    Same here brother. Sad thing that we bothered taking a Rita home to the US and eventually scrapped it. So sad.

    Could that be the rare Navy Type 2 No. 80 Mk. 5 1760 lb (800 kg) bomb? Any armament experts able to confirm?
