The Japanese were aware of the results of the strategic bombing of Germany, and knew that the B-29 Superfortress would be bombing Japan and the resultant problems which would arise from trying to combat this. Japanese military attaches had become aware of the Komet during a visit to the Bad Zwischenahn airfield and negotiated the rights to licence-produce the aircraft and its Walter HWK 509A rocket engine. Difficulties in shipping an example to Japan meant that the aircraft eventually had to be reverse-engineered from a flight operations manual and other limited documentation. A single prototype was tested before the end of World War II.

Mitsubishi J8M Shusui

Designed as a rocket-powered interceptor based on documention on the German Me 163 Komet, the J8M was first flown on July 7th, 1945.
