English: The Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka (桜花 "cherry blossom") — was a small flying bomb that was carried underneath a Mitsubishi G4M "Betty", Yokosuka P1Y Ginga "Frances" (guided Type 22) or planned Heavy Nakajima G8N Renzan "Rita" (transport type 43A/B) bomber to within range of its target.
  • On release, the Kamikaze pilot would first glide towards the target and when close enough he would fire the Ohka's engine(s) and dive against the ship to destroy it.
