Survivability and armour

Examine the survivability of the aircraft. Note how vulnerable the structure is and how secure the pilot is, whether the fuel tanks are armoured, etc. Describe the armour, if there is any, and also mention the vulnerability of other critical aircraft systems.

Armaments

Offensive armament

Describe the offensive armament of the aircraft, if any. Describe how effective the cannons and machine guns are in a battle, and also what belts or drums are better to use. If there is no offensive weaponry, delete this subsection.

Suspended armament

Describe the aircraft's suspended armament: additional cannons under the wings, bombs, rockets and torpedoes. This section is especially important for bombers and attackers. If there is no suspended weaponry remove this subsection.

Usage in battles

Pilots of the standard Ki-100 found in the tech tree should feel relatively comfortable in the premium Ki-100 II. This aircraft offers balanced performance characteristics that allow the pilot to choose how he wishes to fight in the Ki-100 II and adapt to the combat situation as necessary. The performance of the Ki-100 II is characterised by decent climb rate and manoeuvrability. The aircraft has good (but not the best) acceleration in a dive that makes it suitable for short range "boom and zoom" style attacks. The pilot should position the fighter around 1000 meters above a selected target, dive rapidly, fire a quick burst, and then pull away in a shallow climb to hold the plane's speed and escape. This is the safest way to conduct combat in the Ki-100 II, but there are other options available.

Against less manoeuvrable opponents, turn fighting can be a valid approach. Most German and American aircraft will not be able to out-turn you. However, turning combat is only advised when there are no other enemies around that could pounce on you while you are focused on your target. Do not manoeuvre for too long and avoid getting too slow, because your control surfaces will become less responsive. Then you will be a sitting duck for most other fighters.

With sufficient speed, the Ki-100 II also has suitable energy retention characteristics for spiral climbs and other moves that can drain your opponent's energy. However, there are other fighters which are still superior in this regard.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Generous ammo load
  • Maneuverable at mid to high speeds
  • Pretty good climb rate
  • Doesn't lock up too badly at high speed
  • Flexible fighting style

Cons:

  • Average roll rate
  • Fragile, vulnerable to fires
  • Not very fast
  • No considerable strengths in performance

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the aircraft in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article. This section may also include the vehicle's devblog entry (if applicable) and the ingame encyclopedia description (under === Encyclopedia Info ===, also if applicable).

Media

Excellent additions to the article would be video guides, screenshots from the game, and photos.
