The Nakajima Ki-201 "Karyu" was a Japanese jet fighter project designed during the final stages of World War II, but never completed.

On the other hand, the design team led by Iwao Shibuya based the Karyū much more closely on the German aircraft, which turned out to be quite impressive. The Ki-201 project was commissioned by the Japanese Imperial Army between October and December 1944, with the Army setting performance requirements of a top speed of 800~1000 km/h, a practical ceiling of 12,000 meters, and a range of 800~1,000 km. The design was advanced by Nakajima during 1945 and the basic drawings were completed in June. Nakajima expected to complete the first Karyū by December 1945 and the first 18 units by March 1946. Most sources agree that work on the first prototype did not begin until after the Japanese surrender.

    92274 Nakajima Ki-201 "Karyu"

    Nakajima Ki-201 "Karyu" byl projekt japonského proudového stíhacího letounu navržený během závěrečných fází druhé světové války, který však nebyl nikdy dokončen. Nakajima Kikka byl inspirován úspěšným německým Messerschmittem Me 262, ale podobnosti s tímto letounem byly omezeny na obecnou konfiguraci.
