Very cool request! I think this planes should be made because Japs don't (and didn't) have any strategic bombers at all and this injustice should be eliminated at least in our Il-2 ;)

I also think that to this request should be added plane G5N Shinzan (Liz). :)

93.6 lb/sqft wing loading! Good Lord! How the hell does that thing even get off the ground. and at around 30 lb/sqft the B-29 was thought to be insanely heavy! +1 and all that, but God!

I would have had the possibility the engines would have been freaking strong powerhouses. There was even one example built...

If it leaves the ground, put one .50 caliber round in the wing root to send it back where it came from :D

Nakajima G5N Shinzan, (Allied Code name Liz)
« Reply #19 on: August 09, 2015, 02:09:29 AM »

Hello gentlemen

This G5N Heavy Bomber is Outstanding

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nakajima_G5N

The Nakajima G5N Shinzan (??"Mountain Recess") was a four-engined long-range heavy bomber designed and built for the Imperial Japanese Navy prior to World War II. The Navy designation was "Experimental 13-Shi Attack Bomber"; the Allied code name was "Liz".

Code: [Select]
Role Heavy bomber
Manufacturer Nakajima Aircraft Company
First flight 8 April 1941[1]
Retired 1945
Primary user IJN Air Service
Produced 6
2 of G5N1
4 of G5N2
Developed from Douglas DC-4E

































Design and development

The Nakajima G5N Shinzan originated due to the Imperial Japanese Navy's interest in developing a long-range attack bomber capable of carrying heavy loads of bombs or torpedoes a minimum distance of 3,000 nmi (5,600 km; 3,500 mi). To meet this requirement, it became apparent a four-engine lay-out would be necessary. As Japanese aircraft manufacturers lacked experience in building such large complex aircraft, the Navy was forced to search for a suitable existing foreign-made model upon which to base the new design. It settled on the American Douglas DC-4E airliner. In 1939 the sole prototype of this airliner (previously rejected by American airline companies) was purchased by Nippon Koku K.K. (Japan Airlines Co) and clandestinely handed over to the Nakajima Aircraft Company for dismantling and inspection.[2]

The design that emerged from this study was for an all-metal mid-wing monoplane with fabric-covered control surfaces and powered by four 1,870 hp Nakajima NK7A Mamori 11 air-cooled radial engines driving four-bladed propellers. Notable features included a long ventral bomb-bay, glazed nose and twin tailfins replacing the DC-4E's distinctive triple rudder. The DC-4E's retractable tricycle undercarriage was retained, as well as the original wing form and powerplant arrangement. Defensive armament comprised one 20mm Type 99 Model 1 cannon each in a power-operated dorsal and tail turret plus single-mount hand-operated 7.7mm Type 92 machine guns in the nose, ventral and waist positions.[3]

The first prototype G5N1 made its maiden flight on 14:35 8 April 1941.[1] Overall performance proved disappointingly poor however, due to a combination of excessive weight, the unreliability of the Mamori engines and the complexity of the design. Only three more prototypes were completed. In an attempt to salvage the project, two additional airframes were fitted with 1,530 hp Mitsubishi MK4B 12 "Kasei" engines and redesignated G5N2s. Although the Mitsubishi engines were more reliable than the original Mamori 11s, the aircraft was now even more hopelessly underpowered and further development of the type was halted.[3]

Operational history

Of the six completed Shinzans, four of them were relegated for use as long-range Navy transports under the designation G5N2-L Shinzan-Kai Transport. The Allies allocated the code-name "Liz" to the aircraft, in the expectation it would be used as a bomber.[3]

I found it First.

so you make requests to become the "first who found something"?
Interesting... but that's not what this request section is meant to be.

Its good as it is now: I merged your new request with this existing thread
as there is no need to have this Japan strategic bombers in seperate threads.
