Stealing technology for the next war
Designed for shooting down bombers, these Japanese-built craft carried four forward-facing 20 mm cannons. Some were modified to carry upward facing 20 mm cannons. Fighters with the upward-firing guns would fly under bombers and fire into their lightly protected bellies. Several of these planes were captured at the end of the war and experimented on by the U.S. and Britain.
