ki-64 most promise design of 3 but be difficult manufacture and known by then reliabilty of ha-40 not good. japan lack knowledge of inline and kawasaki only company look take inline development walk.

ki-64 4x20mm
ki-60 2x12.7mm 2x20mm

i never read ki-78 armment

Yes as an e-book, however I have a stack of books and slew of e-books I've not even had time to open. Most of what I base my discussions on is coming from first hand reports/dis-assemblies/and original author reports & notes....

I have said this before, there is no way you can fault the designers of Japanese aircraft. They came up with some very clever solutions to the often difficult and tactically out of date specifications given them by the IJN and IJAFC.

Their only real stopping point was Japanese industry's lack of technical expertise at that time.
