Summary
  • The Ki-44 Tojo' represented a radical departure from the Japanese Army Air Force's emphasis on manoeuvrability and aerobatics, being designed from the outset to fill the role of a fast-climbing, heavy hitting point defence fighter. In the hands of experienced pilots prepared to take advantage of its qualities it was a formidable air weapon. The teething troubles of its debut in the optimistic days of early 1942 were soon forgotten as it began to play a key part in defending occupied territories from the ever-increasing Allied air offensive. The relatively low number of 'Tojos' produced was belied by its appearance on every front except New Guinea, and its unique position as the best gun platform amongst Army or Navy aircraft. This volume provides coverage of the role of the Ki-44 in JAAF campaigns in South-East Asia, China and the air defence of Japan from 1942 to 1945, from the first elite deployment of pre-production aircraft in the attack on Malaya to the last desperate air-to-air ramming sorties against B-29s over the Home Islands
