    If you could streamline Japanese aircraft, engine, and armament procurement, so there would be less duplication between Army and Navy, how would you do it?

    A5M or Ki-27?
    Ki-44 or J2M?
    Ki-21 or G3M?
    Ki-49 or G4M?

    Or were these aircraft sufficiently different to all be needed?

    What about engine production?

    (sorry if this sounds like an essay question, just trying to start a little chat)

    The J2M was too late, so I'd go with Ki-44 all the way. The Ki-27 needs navalization, so go with the A5M instead also for the Army needs?
    As for the bombers - go with the ones where self-sealing tanks can be installed more easily?
