More info:

The Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka was a rocket-powered kamikaze aircraft developed by the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. It was designed to be carried by a bomber and released near the target, where it would accelerate to high speed and crash into an enemy ship or installation. The Ohka was intended to be a weapon of last resort, as the pilot had no chance of survival. The name Ohka means “cherry blossom” in Japanese, and was a reference to the samurai tradition of falling in battle like a flower. The Ohka was also known by the Allied codename “Baka”, which means “fool” or “idiot” in Japanese.
