Its twin brother - the Ki-100-II was further development attempt to introduce high-altitude interceptor equipped with a supercharger capable of intercepting enemy bombers at a great altitude. Based on the series-produced Ki-100-Ib, by August 1945 three Ki-100-IIs were built with turbochargers and a methanol injection system for WEP. These were the most modern aircraft of their type. Because of the end of the war, these planes did not go into large-scale series production.
Hudson Mk V - A twin-engined rascal!
||Aviation has presented many cases of military machines which, after the end of the conflict, were adapted for use in civilian service. The twin engine Lockheed Super Electra was a good example that went in the complete opposite direction however. A well known and respected passenger aircraft became a no less recognizable light bomber, known in the European World War II theater as the Hudson. The Hudson also enrolled in history as the first Allied aircraft operating from the British Isles credited with shooting down a German aircraft during the opening stages of World War II.
