A bit of history

Ki-45 Fighter

Ki-45 Toryu (Jap. 屠龍, Rus. Drakoborets) - twin-engine fighter of all-metal construction.

Developed under Takeo Doi. The first flight of the prototype took place in February 1939.

Adopted in August 1942 under the name of a double fighter army type 2 "Toryu".

The code name of the allies is "Nick".

Although the aircraft was designed as a heavy fighter (similar to the German Me-110), it was most successfully used as an attack aircraft. Also quite good results were achieved by the combination of night fighters of Japan’s air defense fighters equipped with them in the fight against American B-29 bombers.
