Designed by Richard Vogt to meet an IJA requirement for a fighter biplane. After 5 prototypes were built a production order for 180 Type 92 Model 1 was placed with a further order for 200 improved Model 2, which featured a strengthened structure and more powerful BMW VII 750 h.p. engine.
It may be Ki-3.
but it is a two seater with the rear cockpit having a single rear facing MG. Wondering if you could help id? Thanks
Kawasaki KDA-5 / Type 92
First flight of He51(He49a) was Nov 1932.
KDA-5 was 1930...
Looks to me the Japs just copied of the Heinkel 52 biplane fighter. Wish the U.S. was good at making aircraft like the Japs. We couldn't make shit back then!

Looking for some assistance in identifying an aircraft from the IJAA...it is similar to the Type 92 as in the engine cowl appearance and the struts for the wings, but it is a two seater with the rear cockpit having a single rear facing MG. Wondering if you could help id? Thanks
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
