The Hien was a fighter aircraft employed by the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) in 1943 (during World War II), it was particularly noted for its liquid-cooled Ha-40 engine, streamlined fuselage and long, sleek wing. Several different variants of this aircraft were produced throughout the war, including the Ki-61-Id, which housed two 20 mm guns in its nose, plus 12.7 mm machine guns in the wings. In fact, with 1,360 units, it was the most produced Hien variant. This variant also had superior performance at higher altitudes, which meant that it was often tasked to engage incoming U.S. B29 bombers.
