The Type 97 Torpedo Bomber was the mainstay attack aircraft during the early days of the Carrier Task Force, renowned for its operational range despite being slow and unarmored. This squadron was led by Commander Tomonaga who was spirited and highly skilled.
- 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.
