|TextEN||The German merchant cruiser HSK-1 Orion used an E8N2 Dave with the serial L5196 as replacement for it's former Arado Ar 196. Vize-Admiral Wenecker bought this machine in Japan, it was transferred with the HK Munsterland to the Marian Islands and passed on February 1st, 1941 near Maug-Island to Orion. Pilot was Leutnant Klaus von Winterfeldt. It was painted with British insignias. On May 26th, 1941 it had an accident while starting near Madagaskar and sunk.|
Formally the Dave was assigned to the Bordfliegergruppe 5./196. Some literature names it as a Nakajima 90-11. This is based on a fault of the German Navy. The internal name at Nakajima was Type 95.
