The monograph on the Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate, WW2 Japanese fighter plane, discusses its origins and development (including subsequent modifications and variants: Ki-106, Ki-113, Ki-116, Ki-84R, Ki-84P and Ki-84N), camouflage and markings and operational history since its combat debut over China in Summer of 1944 till the end of the WW2. Each version is specified and described. The author uncovers the fates of Ki-84s captured by the Americans and presents an evaluation of the aircraft. The book includes a comprehensive technical description, technical data, a glossary of some Japanese terms and names and lists of the IJAAF units equipped with Ki-84s and the IJAAF ranks.


"does a very good job of covering the design and development of the aircraft and goes into some detail regarding its combat use and the units that flew the aircraft. This is accompanied by some excellent period photographs and especially those which go into the different parts of the airframe. A well done section on camouflage and markings is included...In all, it makes for another excellent Kagero offering and a book that Japanese aircraft enthusiasts should have on their shelves. Highly recommended."

"It's a fascinating book that will no doubt appeal to model makers, but the detailed history will also be of interest to anyone who likes wartime Japanese fighters”.
