Tachikawa Ki-17 CEDAR

Developed after the failure of the low-powered variant of the Ki-9 prototype, the Tachikawa Ki-17 biplane had a slimmer fuselage, more square-cut equal-span wings and a redesigned tailplane. The first of two prototypes was flown in July 1935. Trials were successful and the only major change made to subsequent production aircraft was the deletion of the upperwing ailerons to eliminate oversensitive control inputs.

Between 1936 and 1943 Tachikawa completed 658 series Ki-17s and the type was used at four major flying schools and the Army Air Academy. The Ki-17 bore the official designation Army Type 95 III Primary Trainer, Allied codename 'Cedar'.
