The Mitsubishi Ki-46 (Allied reporting name: Dinah) was a reconnaissance and later converted interceptor aircraft that was used by Japan during World War II.

Description

The Ki-46 used two Mitsubishi Ha-112 engines to propel itself at speed of up to 630 kilometers per hour. Notably, fuel was stored in various areas around the aircraft such as between the two cockpits so as to increase the maximum range to 2,000 kilometers. However, without armor protection or self-sealing fuel tanks, this decreased the aircraft's overall survivability.[1]
