Default Manchukuo aircraft (v.2017)

Just a few notes on aircraft, according to "A History of Chinese Aviation - Encyclopedia of Aircraft and Aviation in China until 1949"

117, 140 Aichi D1A - weren't used.

In fact, the air force was created only in 1937, and first combat aircraft were Kawasaki Type 88 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kawasa...sance_Aircraft and Nakajima Type 91 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nakaji...ype_91_Fighter

The icon could do well for Type 88: https://www.aviationsmilitaires.net/...saki_88_3v.jpg

118 Nakajima Ki-27 - introduced after 1940 (now 1/35, when it haven't even flew) (photo attached, or other copy: http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g6...9.jpg~original)

119, 136 Kawasaki Ki-32 - introduced after 1940 (now 1/38)

It might look like this: https://i.pinimg.com/736x/94/4b/bb/9...98585d3681.jpg or http://www.avionslegendaires.net/wp-...re/Gki32-3.jpg or http://aviadejavu.ru/Images6/MM/MM-165/1017-08-2-3.jpg - photos of Manchukuo aircraft are very rare, but color drawings show they were light grey

133 Ju-86 - there were transport Ju 86Z-2 only (photo attached). Only in mid-39 "it was at some stage planned to convert six Ju 86s into bombers, but this was not carried out, although one was tested with armament fitted".
(BTW - now the picture is Swedish)

134 Heinkel 111 - there's no mention about He 111 in Manchukuo service in the book

135 Ki 21 - the book says, that they were used only as transports by Manchu Air Transport Company.
