Hi!

In 1933,Aichi designed single wing experimental AM-10 two-seat reconnaissance seaplane apart from the experimental 8-shi reconnaissance seaplane.
This airplane possessed the cantilevering system taper wing by which the feature of Heinkel was taken in and the sophisticated shape form with the windshield shutting tightly. This airplane had the change system of land use and water use with a large flap. When land use, this aircraft had very progressed retractable undercarriage. The high-speed single wing airplane with such cantilevering system taper wings was unusual as those days, and considerable high performance was expected, but it was cancellation only with a design.
