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

The Ki-44-II otsu carries is outfitted with the following weapons:

  • 2 x 12.7 mm Hp-103 machine guns
  • 2 x 40 mm Ho-301 auto-cannons

The twin Ho-103 machine guns are identical in performance to most other Japanese aircraft carrying this type. The air targets belt is recommended in most situations as it carries a great balance of armour piercing and incendiary components along with tracer rounds. The twin Ho-301 auto-cannons are devastating to anything which it hits, making short work of most aircraft. The unfortunate drawback with these cannons is that they utilise very low-velocity rounds and will need a large lead on anything being attacked with a larger lead time the further out the target is.

Suspended armament

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in an aircraft, the features of using vehicles in a team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view, but instead, give the reader food for thought. Examine the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Summarize and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - they can be substituted with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".

Pros:

  • Powerful Armament
  • Highest top speed of its tier
  • Extremely good acceleration
  • Good climb rate

Cons:

  • Fires will not go out
  • Fragile
  • Engine easily damaged
  • Extremely Low Velocity 40 mm cannons
  • Only 20 rounds for the 40 mm cannons
  • 40 mm cannons are able to fire its entire supply of ammo in about 1 second

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 If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/ History" (example: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.
