The J2M4 Kai is a prototype of the Raiden series, designed to improve the fighter’s performance at high altitudes. Thanks to its rate of climb and good armament, it’s best suited for passing attacks. The guns have an impressive 680 rounds of ammunition in total!

The IJN Kiyoshimo destroyer has decent mobility and is equipped with good anti-air defences and 16 torpedoes. Its 127 mm main guns have a slow traverse speed, but they make up for it with good ballistics and a decent rate of fire!
