Nakajima Ki.62 / Ki.63

Ki-62 design

The Ki-62 was a light fighter designed in 1941 to compete with the Kawasaki Ki-61. Although this design appeared to be promising, its development was discontinued to enable Nakajima to concentrate on its production of their Ki-43 and Ki-44. Later, the Ki-62's data and design features were incorporated into the Ki-84 design. A related design known as the Ki-63 was a projected version powered by a 1050 hp Mitsubishi Ha-102 radial engine. Neither the Ki-62 or the Ki-63 ever left the design phase. (source: Francillion)
