Credits to Camarada Ayuso for the default skin, skinners will also find some links to images for possible schemes.
Inside you will also find the Performance figures for each aircraft.  ;)

Known bugs:
Fixed in Version 2. Report any others.

Some background info:

The J8M Shusui (Literally Autumn Water", used as a
poetic term meaning "Sharp Sword") was essentially the
license production version of the Me-163 Komet.

The 2 aircraft actually differ quite a bit in performance.
Once the Germans were able to send a Komet example and some technical blueprints,
it had to be adapted to Japanese manafacturing capabilities.

As a result the copied HWK rocket engine produced 500lb less thrust.
The Japanese version was also essentially more "fragile", with the
cockpit armour plating being removed to save weight, and the Main wing spar
and Vertical tail being built of Plywood and wood.

It also carried less fuel and slightly less ammo.
This ended with an aircraft 410kg lighter when empty than the Komet
but this was not enough to offset the effects of the weaker engine.

Whilst the Navy began their own long range project, the Army disliked the design and began working on their own project in secret.
It would use a more powerful engine, the fuselage would be increased by length and so would the wing span. The result was something less than satisfactory that actually had less projected endurance than the original. I thought this was incorrect and only gave it around 40 secs more increased flight time.

Crazy check the hier and try to move the CF damage meshes, they won't budge. I think that is the cause, I changed the scale of them.

The navy used 2XHo-105 30MM Cannons, whilst the army used 2xType 5 30mm cannons. (And I forgot to mention in credits the Type 5 Classes are courtesy of Kodama.)

Both guns have 50 rounds each, or about 5 seconds worth.

Will not run on UP 3.0  :(
  It might one day...
Great addition to the 45'/46' forces, goodluck to further updates, & other stuff. Had the war lasted longer or progressed differently, I think possible swarms of these might have been encountered, ala Battle of the Philippine Sea/'Great Marianas Turkeyshoot'. but in semi-opposite way/manner.
  Although with less armour and more pilots returning at similar times (assuming those pilots that didn't crash, explode, collide, etc) who managed to keep control after damage/imjury to land somewhere seemingly safe to, could face a higher risk of being disolved if aircaft glided home & landed as a loose flock, through best/smoothest(?) landing areas filling up more by the early RTB-ing kites first/naturaly.

Whoops...8) I got a bit what if plausable operational likely reasons for losses in possible usage; scenario logic there ::)
