The main purpose, usage and tactics recommendations

General play style

The Ki-43-II Hayabusa was built from the ground up to be a very maneuverable turn fighter. It sacrifices any additional armament and armor for the ability to turn and climb. The aircraft was fitted with butterfly flaps (a type of combat flap) that drastically boost its ability to turn. Since the Hayabusa lacks any armor you will need to fly it with a defensive mind set. This aircraft is very comparable to the A6M series in the regards of handling and tactics.
