Yokosuka

The Japanese Navy Arsenal at Yokosuka became involved in aircraft production in 1913, when an aeroplane factory was set up, its first work being to build several Maurice Farman and Curtiss Seaplanes. It continued to build aircraft under license, including more Farman aircraft and several Short 184 seaplanes, as well as prototypes of several of its own designs. The Yokosuka Naval Arsenal Ordnance Department Japanese Aeroplane Factory created the first tractor float biplane in Japan, the designer Chikuhei Nakajima having closely studied Farman and Deperdussin aircraft designs. Completed in February 1915, this seaplane was known as the Nakajima-type Tractor. Nakajima's second design was a single-engined reconnaissance bomber, with 4 prototypes completed in 1919 and 1920.
