Nakajima Ki-43-IIb Hayabusa (Peregrine Falcon)

Shown here shining under the Chinese sun is a Ki-43-IIb Army Type 1 Fighter Model 2B Hayabusa (Peregrine Falcon) 2nd Chutai (red diagonal stripe), 25th Sentai. The application of green mottle over the aircraft's natural metal skin was not a very effective form of camouflage.
