I can't read Japan, but maybe this aircraft is Ki 102-Hei? That is a high-altitude version of Ki 102, with longer fuselage and wings (length 13.050 m, wingspan 17.250 m, wing area 40 m2 - instead of 11.450 m, 15.570 m and 34 m2 of "normal" Ki 102), new pressurized cockpit, armed with two 30-mm and two 20-mm cannons. Its service ceiling is 13 000 m, and maximum speed is 600 km/h at 10 000 m altitude.

The source is a book which cover is in attachment.

Yes.
Thanks gral_rj! I already convinced in it after reading Justo's posts. And it seems that Ki 102-Hei has a little in common with the main Ki 102 - much less than Ki 96 and Ki 108 have...

Given the similarities, you have to wonder if they shared the same radar fit.

Hello!
A translation of the Czech text:
Because the Nakajima Ki 49-IIb heavy bomber was underpowered, the company decided to mount much more powerful engines on it - they were 18-cylinder, twin-row Nakajima Ha 117 radials. During prototype tests, one but fatal thing became clear - the engines are very unreliable and underdeveloped for the mass production. So, the program was closed.

Time: late 1943
Built: 6
Crew: 8
Powerplant: two Nakajima Ha-117 radial engines, 2420 hp each
Takeoff weight: 13 500 kg
Wingspan: 20.42 m
Length: 16.50 m
Height: 4.25 m
Maximum speed: 540 km/h
Rate climb: 10 min 30 s to 5000 m
Service ceiling: 8500 m
Range: 3500 km with 500 kg bomb load

Armament:
1x Ho-1 20-mm cannon (dorsal turret),
3x Ho-103 12.7-mm machine guns (nose, ventral, and tail turrets),
2x Type 89 7.7-mm machine guns (firing through side windows).

There, I made it!

I have decided to draw my own version of the C6N2-S Model 12 Saiun-Kai. How does it look?

Cheers
Gerhard

Hey, Guys

Some sources refer to this version as the C6N3 Saiun-KAI-1. Any thoughts on this?

borovik,

Interesting that the tail fin of the Ki-102c is different from both the Ki-96 prototypes and the Ki-102a & b. It looks like one Ki-108 has the Ki-102c tail as well.

Kawasaki represented by Takeo Doi to accelerate the work and savings on new prototypes, using elements from his other aircraft ...
Fairness (just noticed) it should be noted that in the scheme above, mixed in places Ki-108 and Ki-108 KAI
/IMHO/

C6N3:High altitude two seat night fighter. C6N1 with slanting two 20mm cannon.Only paper plan.
C6N4:Improved high altitude performance type.Engine was Mitsubishi(三菱) HA43-11 Type LU(MK9A-L) with Hitachi 10 type turbo super charger,take off power was 2,200hp. C6N4 had been developping until the end of the war.

Very good drawings as usual. I want to see your speculation about Nakajima Ki-84Ⅲ turbo Hayate fighter.

Engine performance comparison between C6N1(Homare engine(single stage two speed mechanical supercharger)) and C6T(turbo charged Homere engine Saiun).
