The handling characteristics and reliability
of the Ki-36 made the army
realize that it was ideal for use as an
advanced trainer, resulting in development
of the Ki-55, intended
specifically for this role and having
armament reduced to a single forward-
firing machine-gun. Following
the testing of a prototype in September
1939, the army ordered this aircraft as
the Army Type 99 Advanced Trainer;
when production was terminated in
December 1943 a total of 1,389 had
been built by Tachikawa (1,078) and

I think the illustration is Ki55.
-Chinese Communist Air Force operated 30 Ki55s,only 2 Ki36,
and this code letter is"07-021".
-It has no side window and spats.
Sorry for my poor English.
