An update: the 20 mm Type 94 Flex fitted to the Ki-20 was a slightly modified version of the Oerlikon Type L (20 x 99RB ammunition). This was an earlier, heavier and slower-firing model than the Oerlikon FFL which was subsequently acquired by the Imperial Japanese Navy as the 20 mm Type 99-2.IIRC this plane was the only one to mount the 20mm Type 94 aircraft gun, a modified version of the Oerlikon FFL.
There was a secret "strategic" bomber chutai using the 6 built aicraft after introduction and they had trial and exercise bomb drops.Did these fascinating giants ever drop bombs on anything, even for trials purposes?
