List of military aircraft of Japan

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list of military aircraft of Japan includes prototype, pre-production and operational types regardless of era. This includes both native Japanese designs, Japanese produced licensed copies of foreign designs, and foreign-produced aircraft that served in the military of Japan.

Wikipedia policy is to use the Japanese names, not the World War II Allied codenames, although these will included here for ease of reference. The prefix "Ki" in this list is an abbreviation of "Kitai", meaning "airframe", and was used only by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force. "Ki" should be read as one word.

(Note: a " - " means the information is unknown, not yet added, or not applicable.)

Modern (post 1945)[edit]

See also: Japan Air Self-Defense Force; the J.A.S.D.F was formed in 1954.
