Description Edit | History

The Nakajima Kikka (中島 橘花, "Orange Blossom") was Japan's first jet-powered aircraft. It was developed late in World War II and the first prototype had only flown once before the end of the conflict.

Nakajima designers laid out an aircraft that bore a strong but superficial resemblance to the German Messerschmitt Me 262. Compared to the Me 262, the Kikka airframe was noticeably smaller and more conventional in design, with straight (rather than swept) wings and tail surfaces. The triangular fuselage cross section characteristic of the German design was less pronounced, due to smaller fuel tanks. The main landing gear of the Kikka were taken from the A6M Zero and the nose wheel from the tail of a Yokosuka P1Y bomber.

As Described In

Aces of the Pacific 1946: The Kikka was Japan's first jet aircraft. Used originally as a bomber, a fighter version was quickly developed with more powerful engines. It outclassed everything but the Lockheed P-80.
