Ki-201 Karyu was about 50% completed when japan was forced to surrender. The following information is purely estimates formed by the japanese designers.

This was possible becuase Ne-130 jet engine, Ne-230 and Ne-330 engines (1 of each) have been constructed and tested.


Ne-20 = 1100lbs thrust (this one was used on Kikka Prototypes)

Ne-230 = 1951lbs thrust (This one was chosen to be used for the production kikka's)

Ne-130 = 20002lbs thrust (This one was chosen for the Ki-201)

Ne-330 = 3680lbs thrust (R2Y2's were to use this one, it however was destroyed in a bombing raid and it drank fuel insanely fast)
