Design and development
The K7M was a cantilever high-wing monoplane with a cabin for five students and two instructors, and was of metal construction, with fabric-covered outer wings. The K7M was powered by two 340 hp (254 kW) Gasuden Tempu radial piston engines. The Navy decided the twin-engined type was too costly to replace the single-engined K3M and the type was not developed further, the two prototypes did enter service as trainers with the designation K7M1.
