    Well, what is it?

    The big yellow one, not the little silver one next to it.

    Google Lens helped me find the answer in seconds.
    Too easy nowadays.
    A few years ago we'd be looking at books or trawling through various images on the net.

    I have it as a Japanese Nakajima G8N Renzan, code named “Rita” by the Allies.

    Any of y’all have it as something different?

    Also while reading about it those sneaky LYB’s were drawing up plans for a 6 engine version with bombing the Panama Canal in mind.


    Alright, anyone of you fellers know what the acronym “LYB” means and who coined it?

    It was not long after Pearl Harbor. You can imagine how the threat of the “Yellow Peril” was gripping the nation about that time.
