Kyuukoukabakugekitai (急降下爆撃隊, meaning Dive Bomber Squad, US release title Gaia) is a shoot 'em up game for arcade that was planned to be released by Konami. Probably the best known unreleased arcade game in Japan. Similar to the Namco System 2 hardware Metal Hawk released by Namco in 1988, but with much more advanced graphics.

A prototype board was sold at Yahoo Auctions on February 26, 2016. Arcade game collector ShouTime has raised a donation for funding with the help of Smitdogg to get it. As a result, a lot of money was raised and ShouTime succeeded in getting a prototype. Later dumped by Andy Welburn and Haze. And it surfaced on June 8, 2016.
