The Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka was a rocket powered human-guided anti-shipping kamikaze attack plane, using as a platform, the bomber Mitsubishi G4M Betty. The following link shows a report and some photos this weapon, employed by Japan towards the end of World War II. I hope you enjoy.

Two seater trainer? Why do you need training on how to commit suicide?OME

They were bringing in teenagers by then and taught for there first and only flight. They weren't even taught how to land, only control and aim.

Terrible waste of life. They had suicide torpedos too. The few who survived those, usually due to aborted missions, then had to deal with the shame of surviving.
