[About Ki-100 Type 5 Fighter]


Wikipedia
The Ki-100 Type 5 fighter is a single-engine, single-seat fighter of the Japanese Army. It was the last fighter adopted by the Japanese Army.
Its prototype was the Ki-61 Type 3 fighter. The Ki-61 was equipped with a liquid-cooled engine, which was unusual for a Japanese military aircraft, but its low operating rate was a drawback due to frequent engine malfunctions. The development and production of the engine for the Type 2 in particular was delayed, and at one point there was an unusual situation in which headless aircraft with no engine were lined up outside the factory for two kilometers.
In response, the Japanese military and Kawasaki Aircraft considered installing air-cooled engines. The result was the Ki-100 Type 5 fighter.
Although the Ki-100 was born with a hastily installed air-cooled engine, its performance was excellent, and it was deployed in mainland defense battles and other operations. However, production numbers did not increase amid the worsening war situation, and it is said that only less than 400 were produced. It was never given a nickname until the end of the war.

    Sorry, I am not a Chinese speaker, so let me answer in English.
    Thank you for your request. I have already started to create a US aircraft now, so I will create A6M next time I create a Japanese aircraft.

    Thanks for the comment.
    Well...the next one is totally undecided. I have received various requests...but I will decide according to my mood.
    As a Japanese, I would like to build an A6M someday.

    Would it be possible to build a A6M5 Hei from the Tsukuba Kokutai? If so, I'd love to see it as the Tsukuba Kokutai is very pretty. Thank you for your consideration!

    Thanks for the comment.
    Thanks also for the request. I think it is possible for me to make it. But since I just recently built the P-51, I have no plans to build the F-82 at this time. Sorry.

    Fun fact: the Ki-100 was better than almost any allied fighter in both the European and Pacific theaters
