This plane is the beginning IJN tech tree heavy fighter, available via a mission for 5 tokens. My initial impression, after slogging through the missions, is that it's much better than I expected.

 

The fully elited version features a single 37mm cannon and a single 20mm. There is a rear gunner with a 7.92mm gun. It carries two 250kg bombs for a cumulative damage of 8800. 

 

Flying it reminds me of the german Bf 110 C-6, except this turns much better. The guns pack a good punch, and with the surprising maneuverability, it can handle the 'melee' around a cap quite well. I tried it against bombers and a player bomber and it had no problems with them, although it was beginning to get sluggish at the higher altitude the bomber operated in.

 

You get a free camo scheme with it, which quite honestly is garish in green, yellow and orange, but it's free. Pilot + gunner with 1 skill. Overall, a big thumbs up and I look forward to the rest of the line.

Got my T7 Ki-93 and I think I have similar impression with you.

When I first saw their huge guns I thought that they would have trouble hitting the broad side of a barn, but in fact they are a lot better than what many would think.

I mean, yes, they would have to resort to their secondary weapons (and lose 2/3 of its firepower) when facing smaller aircrafts (i.e. LF and MR), but they serve as decent HF killers as well as ground pounder hunters.

Yeah, I'm not sure they're for me, but I respect those derp guns. Even the bot Japanese heavies have eaten my lunch. I just remember bombing targets in my IL-20, and I felt two hard CHUNK CHUNK hits, and I was like "what the holy hell was that?" and there goes a Ki-93. I think that's the right one? The tier 7? Yeah, that hurt something fierce. I might have to try them just to see what the noise is about :P

I just had a pop up in the game flash by that said I lost the op order for the Ki-102 (I think, I only caught a quick glimpse) was removed because it timed out.  I never had an op order for that plane.  What new torments do they have in store?

Yes, the Ki-93 is the tier 7. I wanted to start at T5 myself to have something to look forward to rather than outright get the T7.
