    Hello,
    Need some informations (confirmations) regarding 2 aircrafts flown by S. Anabuki in 50 Sentai, 3 Chutai.
    Regarding "Fubuki" => apparently Ki-43-I late in 1942/early 1943 but how many victories on the tail (12 or less) ?
    Regarding "Kamikaze" => apparently Ki-43-II late in 1943 but which model ?
    Any photos ???
    TIA, regards
    St├ęph

    Victories claimed by Sgt. Satoru Anabuki
    3 with Ki-27 (Dec 21, 1941 to Feb 9, 1942)
    15 with Ki-43-1-a (Oct 25, 1942 to Jan 30, 1943)
    23 with Ki-43-2-a (Feb 28, 1943 to Oct 8, 1943)
    6 with Ki-84 and Ki-100 (as flight instructor during 1944-1945)

    Nickname for his 2nd Ki-43 was not Kamikaze but Kimikaze for his wife Kimiko.
    As his second Ki-43 was damaged by ramming a B-24, he might have flown 3rd one.
    No exact photos.
