The design of this aircraft is based on its predecessor Ki-61-IIKai. The aircraft was equipped with a Mitsubishi Ha-112II engine with a power of 1500 horsepower, and thus at the beginning of 1945 an excellent machine was created, which is often referred to as the best Japanese fighter of the Second World War ever. The new Ki-100s were armed with two 20 mm cannons and two 12.7 mm machine guns. Fortunately for the Americans, these aircraft did not get into service in large numbers, as they were very dangerous for their long-range bombers, including the B-29 flying fortresses. It was the air offensive of American heavy bombers that destroyed the Japanese aircraft industry and significantly reduced the production of the excellent Ki-100 aircraft.
