Please, can you give me any link on info about Ki-43 II with kI-43I wings?

Hi Rasta!

Info about Ki-43-II are confusing, as explained by the authoritative Nicholas Millman (alias Straggler) in a e-mail he sent me time ago. Here follows an excerpt:



Also Bueschel, in his:



gives a wingspan of 11.437 m and wing area of 22.000 m² for what he calls Ki-43-IIa, then a wingspan of 10.837 m and 21.400 m² for what he calls Ki-43-IIb.

I don't think you may find (so far) any better detailed description on the matter than that reported above. I even guess that further intermediate variants may have occurred during the production run, as suggested by following picture, which is the best i know about this early variant of Ki-43-II, clearly showing rounded tips and internal hard points of type "I" wing, but already deprived of annular oil cooler...



Kagero's drawings are purely fancy, and Aerodetail one is inaccurate.

Hope to have satisfied your request. Regards,
GB
