Everyone says right now that the 2 drop J5N Tenrais are the way to go on Hakuryu. I decided to go old school and researched the 4 drop variant instead, and tried it out in a few random and training battles. I would say the torpedoes themselves are very nice, high alpha damage and 4 of them. If they all connect they do a lot of damage. The Tenrai itself is also a very beautiful plane, and the word Tenrai means "Heavenly Thunder". The problems with them is that the handling and aiming when in attack mode is awful, and the arming distance is very long so it's not super accurate. And you have to start the run from quite far away, and it can be quite difficult when the enemy team blobs up especially since the planes fly at flak level, making aiming and seeing much harder. What it would need to be in a good place are the following: -Slightly better aiming speed, preparation time, and general handling. I think an about 50% reduction to that extremely long preparation time and a 25% reduction to the time it takes for it to get tight, or something around that. -Make them fly below flak. It makes no sense how they are the only torpedo bombers that do not fly below flak, they are very vulnerable in this position and tend to die quickly. Plus all the extra flak in your face makes it harder to see and aim properly. -Decrease the arming distance by about a fourth or so. The arming distance is very far which can make accurate drops a bit hard to do, especially when islands are involved. They can be pretty fun but still need work. I will make sure to practice these more and in case they are ever buffed that will be good news.
