Honestly wondering what the differences are.
Self sealing tanks, armor, guns?

Guns.

But for the life of me I cannot tell what guns they have, except for the Hei, which has 2 ".50 cals" in the nose and one MG151/20 in each wing.

the 3 variaqnts of Ki61 we have in game are actually close to identical - main differences are the weapons.
performance is also roughly the same , with the KOas the best performer and the HEI the worst . but the differences are VERY small.

as an overview
Tpy89 is 7,7mm MG
Ho-103 is 12,7mm MG
MG151 is german 20mm canon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif (thy got some via Submarine http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif )

just a note:that the OTSU cames after the HEI is absolutly wrong

a nice addition would be a Ki-61-Tei (lets call it so, ok ? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ), this model was amlost the half of the whole Ki-61-I productuion!
with 2x20mm Ho-5 canons in fuselage and 2xHo-103 MGs in wing. BUT, that would need a reworked 3D modell because it had a llonger fuselage

Otsu and Hei have droptanks now. Not sure why Ko doesn't, since all three have the same pylons.

actually , most propably, these versions should all be able to carry Droptanks, but no bombs http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That's what I said before. But atleast we got the droptanks. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now we need them for Ki-43-I and Ki-43-II

When ever I fly a Tony online, the object is (for me) to fly through a hotzone and get back and land without getting killed. I do have one online kill (probably because my target dismissed me and was dealing with a real threat - and I got lucky http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif). I have NO idea what the guns are (or aren't), see above posts.


The airplane as modelled is horrible. One would think the plane, with that wing, could at least turn . . . http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Takes some getting used to - but the toni turns VERY well. I bagged an a20 a couple of corsairs and a beaufighter online the other night with no losses - once I climbed into the one with the cannons that is.
