Mitsubishi Ki-112 Army Experimental Convoy Fighter

The Mitsubishi Ki-112 was a design project for a heavily armed fighter based on the Ki-67 Hiryu (Tony). Work began on the project in October 1944, and ended in the summer of 1945 before any aircraft had been built, and thus before the final details of the design had set down. It was probably a wooden version of the Ki-67, armed with eight 12.7mm Type 1 machine guns and a single 20mm cannon, and may have been designed to protect the Ki-67-I two-seat Sakura-Dan suicidal attack aircraft.
