This is the land-based attack aircraft developed as the successor to the navy's mainstream land-based attack aircraft, the "Type 1 Land-based Attacker ". With its excellent airframe design, it had great potential capabilities. There were problems such as late deployment into service as well as the excessively complicated construction, but it fought through the end. A portion of these were diverted for use as night fighters.

- Masao is also known for designing the Suisei.

- The only aircraft other than the Ryuusei in the IJN's arsenal capable of both dive and torpedo bombing.
- Even though the Ginga was capable of torpedo bombing, since the aircraft was originally designed as a land-based dive bomber, under the IJNAS Short Designation System it is designated as P1Y1 in comparison to its predecessor the Mitsubishi Rikkou Bomber (designated G4M), which was specifically designed as a land-based torpedo bomber.
- Its allied codename, assigned by the Technical Air Intelligence Unit, was "Frances". This is in keeping with the pattern of naming Japanese bombers using female names.
