Mitsubishi Ki.2-II Type 93 ("Louise / Loise")

This was the Japanese version of the German Junkers K-37. It saw action in the second Sino-Japanese war, but by the beginning of WWII it would only have been used in a training role. Even though it was obsolete in 1941 it was still given the Allied codename of "Louise" (alternately, "Loise").
