Although first flown in 1942m Production delays due to World War II would cause The Mitsubishi Ki-67 Medium Bomber to be deployed in the last year of World War II (1944). Over 700 Models were produced for The Japanese War Effort. Used primarily around Saipan, Tinian and The Chinese Mainland, The Ki-67 was designated ''Peggy'' by The Allies. The Model was a rather effective short range Medium Bomber. They were deployed with both The Imperial Japanese Army and Air Forces. Crewed by 6 to 8, The Ki-67 was 62-feet long with a wingspan of 74-feet. Power was provided by Twin Ha-104 (18 Cylinder) Engines - capable of generating 1,200 HP (per engine), Rated airspeed was 340-mph. The Ki-67 could achieve an operational ceiling of 32,000-feet with a range of 1,700-miles.


Armament varied but for self-defense, The Ki-67 supported (5) 12.7mm Machine Guns and (1) 20,, Cannon. Munitons were vaired as well - depending on the mission. Typically, They could support over 1,400-lbs. of gravity Bombs or single 22-inch Torpedo. Some late War versions were even re-designed as ''Kamakaze'' Attack platforms, which (in this configuration) - carried closer to 6,000-lbs. of Munitions. Those surviving Ki-67 Bombers would be taken over by The Indonesian Air Force and used until the mid-1950s.
