The Tokyo Koku Ki-107 was a Japanese military training aircraft for the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force.[1] The Ki-107 was a wooden-built low-wing two-seat monoplane with an open cockpit.[1] Powered by a Hitachi Hatsukaze Ha-47 (Ha-11) inline piston engine it first flew in October 1943.[1] The Japanese Army had ordered 450 as primary trainers as replacement for the Kokusai Ki-86[2] (a license built Bücker Bü 131 that used the same Ha-47 engine), but production was held up by air raids and only 29 had been delivered by the end of the war.[1]
