Flown by Corporal Seiichi Suzuki, from the Chofu Ab, in January 29, in 1945. Corporal Suzuki was only 20 when he was shot down on February 16th, but was considered as an "ace" thanks to achieving one killing of a 1 b-29, four shared killings with others fighters, and three damaged planes.

Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien/Tony

Designed in response to an Imperial Army tender for a general-purpose, air superiority fighter, the Kawasaki Ki-61 first flew in December of 1941. This new fighter entered combat in New Guinea during the spring of 1943, where its unusual appearance earned it the code name "Tony" (Allieds mistakenly identified its origins as Italian). The new aircraft quickly earned the respect of Allied pilots, whose P-40 Warhawks were unable to dive to safety as they could when facing earlier Japanese fighters. Ki-61s were later used in ramming attacks, and several Ki-61 pilots in these "special attack units" earned the Japanese Bukosho for ramming B-29s and surviving.
