I think it's an Okha K-1 glider/trainer, since it doesn't have the rocket motors on the tail that were used in the K-11, which was the only operational bakabomb used during the war. They weren't very effective weapons because they had to be towed by a heavy plane to the operations area and were often shot down before they were even released for action. They did do some damage on a few ships, but didn't live up to the hopes and expectations of the Japanese. The Japanese called them Okha, meaning Cherry Blossoms, but the GI's called them Baka, which is Japanese, meaning Stupid.
