Kawasaki Ki-56 THALIA

Developed from the Lockheed 14 transport built by the Kawasaki Company under licence, the Ki-56 had an enlarged fuselage incorporating a large freight loading door in the port rear-fuselage side. Powered by two 671kW Ha-26-II radial engines, two prototypes were followed by 119 series-built machines designated Army Type 1 Freight Transport (assembled between 1941 and 1943). Widely used in the Pacific war, the Ki-56 was coded Thalia by the Allies.
