Mitsubishi Ki-51(?): One of those days…

This shocking photograph has been identified as the imprint a Kamikaze left on the British heavy cruiser HMS Sussex off Phuket, Siam (Thailand) July 26, 1945. The aircraft seems to be a Ki-51, and someone has created a pretty neat GIF to prove it.

There are some doubts about the veracity of this document, but it sure resumes this jinxed day of mine quite nicely.
