While at NASM Silver Hill, I took this picture of a Yokosuka two-seat suicide trainer. Odd concept, kind of like being an IED bomb tester for the Taliban.

Would the "pupil" have occupied the front or the rear seat ? In front
he would have had an unobstructed view, but this position maybe
would have felt different from the standard position at the cg ?
And standard Okha pilots probably weren't very experienced.

And, the Taliban probably have their own IED training devices !
