Already a veteran in late 1941, the Ki-48 became the main light bomber of the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF) during all the Pacific War. Seeing extensive service in Burma, Malaya, New Guinea, etc. Too slow and pitifully armed, even in the improved -II variants, the design soldiered with the usual Japanese aplomb until the very end…, Kamikaze sorties included. Some saw service later with the Chinese (red and otherwise) and in Indonesia.
Rare, rare colour photo taken from the belly gun position of another “Sokei”, maybe. It was such a lovely toylike thing.
