After the Battle of the Philippines Sea, 19 and 20 June, 1944, only 35 aircraft survived on carriers of 1st, 2nd and 3rd Division:
17 A6M5, 9 A6M2, 5 B6N2, 2 B5N2 and 2 D4Y1.  This photo dated August, 1944, shows D3A2 and A6M2
of 653rd Kokutai on carrier IJN Zuikaku for training.
After the battle of the Marianas, Japanese Navy did a reorganization on July 10, 1944. Remaining flight personnel of
652nd and 601st Kokutai were absorbed in 653rd Kokutai.  The 653rd Kokutai was the nucleus of the carrier force.
Its base for training was Oita air base. Only by September that 653rd Kokutai had reached a level for carrier takeoff and
landing operations. 653rd Kokutai had this organization:
164th Fighter Squadron, 165th Fighter Squadron, 166th Fighter-bomber Squadron and 263rd Attack Squadron.

B6N2 taking off from carrier IJN Zuikaku.
In looking at her TROM, Zuikaku entered the yard for repairs after the Phillipine Sea from July 14th thru
August 2nd, 1944. It seems self evident that both repairs and camouflage was applied at this time and
that flight training would have to resume AFTER this period. Most of us have seen the film clip of the B6N2 taking off
from Zuikaku in the Inland Sea that summer. A portion can be seen on YouTube:
