  Aichi B7A Ryusei / Grace - torpedo-bomber
Aichi began work on this requirement, and its AM-23 prototype flew in mid-1942.
This large aircraft, then designated Navy Experimental 16-Shi Carrier Attack Bomber (Aichi B7A1), was a mid-wing monoplane of inverted gull-wing configuration, a layout selected so that the main units of the retractable tail-wheel landing gear, mounted at the 'elbows' of each wing, would be as short as possible.
Apart from nine prototype B7A1s, only 80 examples were completed by Aichi before its factory was destroyed in the serious earthquake of May 1945; an additional 25 were built by the Navai Air Arsenal at Omura.

The Aichi B7A Ryusei (Japanese: 愛知 B7A 流星, "Shooting Star") was a large and powerful dive bomber and torpedo bomber produced by Aichi Kokuki KK for the Imperial Japanese Navy.
Given the codename Grace by the Allies, it first flew in 1941, but problems with the delivery of the engines meant that it was not produced in numbers until too late to affect the outcome of the war.
The powerplant was a 1,825 horsepower (1,360 kW) Nakajima NK9C Homare 12 18-cylinder radial engine, and the aircraft featured a 'bent' wing – an inverted gull-wing somewhat reminiscent of the German Junkers Ju 87 – to give clearance for the propeller without requiring the use of long main undercarriage legs.

 Aichi B7A "Ryusei"
he Aichi B7A Ryusei (Shooting Star) was one of the largest (and coincidentally one of the most powerful) of Japan's carrier-based aircraft.
The B7A was designed to a 1941 specification, or 16-shi, for a a fast aircraft that was to supplement and later replace the Nakajima B6N and the Yokosuka D4Y dive-bomber.
This was partly due to massive allied bombing, and mainly because the Aichi Furutaka plant was destroyed in a serious earthquake in May 1945.

Aichi's Atsuta engine had low reliability and endurance and was difficult to maintain and repair.
In all, 2038 D4Y dive bombers were produced, and it was only the loss of aircraft carriers and experienced pilots to superior American airpower in 1944-45 that prevented this outstanding aircraft from becoming a true success story.
The last Japanese carrier-based bomber of WWII was the Aichi B7A Rusei (Falling Star).

To obtain desired flight performance, an advanced Nakajima "Homare" 18-cylinder twin-row radial powerplant rated at 2000 hp was selected for this large single-engined aircraft.
This aircraft, known to the allies as Frances, was deservedly respected by them.
The order for the development of a strike aircraft comparable to the latest American “North American B-25 «Mitchell»” and “Martin B-26 «Marauder»” bombers and equipped with the same Nakajima «Homare» engine as B7A, was given to the 1-st Naval Technical Aviation Arsenal in Yokosuka at the end of 1940.

Probably the largest carrier-borne aircraft to be developed for Japanese navy, the Aichi B7A Ryusei (Shooting Star) was designed to replace both the Nakajima B6N 'Jill' and Yokosuka D4Y 'Judy'.
It was to operate from a new class of larger aircraft carriers so the typical 36 foot length restriction was waived.
After only 114 aircraft had been built, Aichi's Funataka plant where the aircraft was being built was destroyed by an earthquake in May of 1945.

Perhaps one of the greatest common threads between the axis powers of Japan and Germany during the Second World War was the concept of too little too late in terms of aircraft development.
Aichi’s B7A2 Ryusei Kai (Grace) was indeed no exception to this rule.
