    Interesting informations from this Japanese bomber prototype.

    Aircraft such as the G8N, the Ki-67, the Ki-84, Ki-87, A7M, late war jets and others only prove, for those who criticise their technological potential, that the Japanese were capable of produce excellent aircraft designs, fully competitive with what the Allies had.

    A nice footage. Thanks for sharing Jenisch!
    I've found out a worker is rivetting inside a Zero fuselage in Nakajima's Koizumi factory:)

    Everybody was very capable of creating trememdous designs, some were especially good at designs on paper.
    But it was the ability to get these designs into production, and to the combat units in usable numbers, and in time, the separated the men from the boys.
