The actual attack on Pearl Harbor was commanded by Mitsuo Fuchida. His B5N2 Kate lead the way and at 0749 sent the coded signal "To, To, To" (Totsugeskiseyo - "charge") to his 51 D3A dive bombers, 40 B5N torpedo bombers, 50 B5N high level bombers and 43 A6M fighters. At 0753 he sent the message Tora, Tora, Tora, back to the Japanese Fleet meaning the operation was successful. Fuchida remained on site to assess the damage from both attack waves and returned to the Akagi with 20 large anti-aircraft holes.

Nakajima B5N2 Kanko/Kate

Designed to meet a 1935 Imperial Japanese Navy requirement for a carrier-based attack bomber to replace the Yokosuka B4Y, the B5N was first flown in January, 1937.
