    Anyone have pictures or schematics of the KI 43 variant to be armed with two 20mm guns in lieu of the 12.7mm nose guns? I ask, because it would seem the cowling would have to undergo an extensive remodling to accomadate the larger weapons.

    Hi !!!
    I don't remember if Ki-43-IIIb is the same with Ki-43-III Otsu.The Japonese names of their planes are a bit strange.However, if it means the same,here you are. The link is to a photo of a frontal part of Ki-43 that seems to be similar to Ki-43-III Otsu.
