The first purpose-designed suicide aircraft and the only rocket-powered aircraft to be used operationally outside Germany was the Japanese Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka. This single-seater was powered by three small solid fuel rocket motors, which were ignited after the aircraft had been air launched from a carrier bomber. On 12 April 1945 an Ohka sank the American destroyer USS Mannert L. Abele off Okinawa.
