This Day in Aviation History
April 8th, 1945
First flight of the Rikugun Ki-93.

The Rikugun Ki-93 was a prototype Japanese twin-engined sextaprop (six-bladed propeller) fighter aircraft of the Second World War. It was the last heavy fighter and ground attack aircraft built in Japan during the war. Unlike the Ki-109, which also sported a large cannon in the fuselage, the Ki-93 was not meant to chase bombers, and was instead designed from the start with ground-attack and anti-shipping roles in mind…..
