The Aichi D3A, 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. The Aichi D3A was the first Japanese aircraft to bomb American targets in World War II, commencing with Pearl Harbor and US bases in the Philippines, such as Clark Air Force Base. During the course of the Second World War, the Val dive bomber sank more Allied warships than any other Axis aircraft. - Wikipedia

Durante a Segunda Grande Guerra, o Aichi D3A foi o avião de ataque que mais afundou navios aliados, mais que todos os outros aviões das forças do "Eixo". - Wikipedia
