Mitsubishi Ki-89 "Sharon"
A what-if light strategic long-range bomber. This plane never existed
About this creation
Based on the German Messerschmitt Me-261 long range record-setter, the Project was bought by the japanese and scaled-down to the Mitsubishi Ki-89 (Allied reporting name: Sharon).

The new plane was used as a light strategic long-range bomber, carrying two 250kg bombs in bombing missions to the West coast of the USA.

Power came from two Daimler-Benz DB-606GD with two stage supercharger. Each engine drove a variable pitch propeller through a shared gearbox, generating 3000hp each.

The plane was also heavily armed and could also be used as a long-range escort fighter-bomber or a high-altitude interceptor. Sometimes, it used a 57mm auto-cannon.

There was also a torpedo-bomber version.



Armament:
- Four Type 5 30mm (1,2) cannons;
- One defensive 13,2mm (0,52) type 3 heavy machine gun;



Hope you like it

Quoting Josh Guilbert THis is really cool But it wouldnt have the range to be a bomber or payload.Would make a great tank buster and CAS plane
Wrong, its a long-range bomber. It was based on the Me-261 and that plane had a range of 11,024 km (6,850 mi). For me, 11 000km is a strategic bomber, even with a bombload of 2 250kg bombs.
