Nakajima ki 49 donryu in japanese army air force service like the history of the war for the japanese the story of the ki 49 mirrors that of the fortunes of the japanese army at first the bomber was hoped to be a superior replacement for the ki 21 sally but proved to have only a marginally better bomb load and performance . The nakajima ki 49 was designed as a replacement for the mitsubishi ki 21 which was just entering service in the spring of 1938 the japanese army air staff issued the specification at that very time calling for a bomber capable of operating without fighter escort relying instead on heavy defensive armament and high speed to escape interceptors. In reality the newer ki 49 design proved to be something of a disappointment to the imperial japanese army air force as the type was a slow performer that like most japanese aircraft of the war was ill armed and under armored.
