The Kawasaki Ki-45 Toryu ("Dragon Slayer") was a two-seat, twin-engine fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army in World War II. The army gave it the designation "Type 2 Two-Seat Fighter"; the Allied reporting name was "Nick".
The Imperial Japanese Army Air Force Ki-45's first flight was in May 1941 after much testing of twin engines on other aircraft as far back as 1937. It was officially introduced in that October to the military, and used by both the Imperial Army and Navy. Initially it was used as a long range bomber escort but was no match against the American Flying Tigers and other single engine fighters. The Ki-45 had gone thru many design changes during its inception caused by fuselage and armament configurations, and were placed in Interceptor roles against enemy bombers.
