Joichi Tomonaga led the one-way trip counterattack from Hiryuu to attack USS Yorktown on his damaged, low fuel plane. Although Tomonaga successfully dropped his torpedo, it missed shortly after being shot down by an F4F-4. His squadron heavily damaged and disabled Yorktown shortly after. The Tenzan Model 12 was supposed to replace his aging Type 97 Torpedo Bomber.
