Technical Information

Not used overseas. Another photo of an H9A1 has the tail marking タク-24 it was photographed outside of a large hangar. No other planes are visible. The tail marking identifies the Takuma Air Group. Japanese artists think the plane was in the orange paint of a trainer or experimental model.

A total of 31 H9A1s were built, 28 put into service as trainers.
