A what-if float seaplane used by the Imperial Japanese Navy
About this creation
The Nakajima N-1L-125 (Allied reporting name: “Billy”) was a single-crew, float seaplane based on the Nakajima Ki-125 Washi (allied reporting name: “Eddie”). This plane appears in the Anime series: Konpeki no Kantai.
The plane was built for the purposes of supporting amphibious operations and defending remote bases in the pacific. The seaplane also served as an interceptor for protecting fueling depots in Midway and later over Pearl Harbor, after the second successful attack to the American base in 1947.
The most usual type of mission was anti-submarine hunt, carrying four 100kg depth-charges, although no radar or sonar was carried.
Superior to most American fighters, like the Hellcat and comparable to the last war versions of the F4U Corsair.
