In 1937 based on the experiences from the Ki-5, a low-wing all-metal monoplane, but the army favoured Nakajima Ki-27 & give up this one.

The Ki-28 was Kawasaki's competitor to fill a requirement for a replacement fighter in 1935 for the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF). It was pitted against the Mitsubishi Ki-33 and the Nakajima Ki-27. All three aircraft were low wing monoplane design and similar in performance but the Ki-27 won out due to its manoeuverability. The Ki-28 was powered by an 800 hp Kawasake Ha-9-IIa liquid cooled engine. Ref Japanese Aircraft of the Pacific War by Rene J Francillon.
