The Battleship Kirishima's eyes in the sky

In World War II, the limited effectiveness of radar meant ships often relied on visual contact to establish enemy positions. Seaplanes, launched from catapults on ships like the Kirishima, could detect threats long before radar or ship lookouts could. Low speed and light armament made seaplanes sitting ducks if enemy fighters showed up, but the risk was often worth the reward.

Decal Options:

  1. I.J.N. Battleship Kirishima Code: BI-1 1938-1939
  2. I.J.N. Seaplane Depot ship Chiyoda Code: Z-55 1939
  3. Extra markings: Z-52, Z-53
