Generic Character Entry

This entry is for a generic or common character type, and acts as an umbrella entry for every game containing this type of character. Games that feature a very distinct and unique interpretation of this character type may receive their own entry.

The Aichi D3A (Japanese: 愛知99式艦上爆撃機, Allied reporting name "Val") was a World War II carrier-borne dive bomber of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). It was the primary dive bomber in the Imperial Japanese Navy, and participated in almost all actions, including Pearl Harbor. During the course of the Second World War, the Val dive bomber sank more Allied warships than any other Axis aircraft.

As Described In

Aces of the Pacific: The Japanese Navy's standard dive bomber for the first 2 years of the war was the Aichi D3A Val. While it was slow, its huge wing made it very agile and stable. By 1943, it had become totally obsolete.

1942 Pacific Air War: The Val has good handling characteristics, especially in a dive. The maneuverability is fair (better than the Dauntless), and the dives are quite steady. The maximum dive angle is, however, slightly shallower than that of the American bomber. Fixed landing gear and strong dive brakes make this bomber slow to accelerate, which is good for your aim in a steep dive.
