Ka-1
Unit: unknown
Serial: unknown

The Japanese government, after acquiring and testing a Kellett KD-1A autogyro in 1939, turned the aircraft over to the Kayaba Industrial Co, which subsequently built an inline-engined version of the aircraft as the Ka-1. This was powered by a 240hp Kobe engine (license version of the German Argus As.10C); the first Ka-1 was flown on 26 May 1941 and eventually some two hundred and forty aircraft of this type were built. They were employed during World War 2 by the Imperial Japanese Army for artillery observation and cooperation duties, and by the Navy for coastal or carrier-based antisubmarine patrol carrying two 60kg bombs or depth charges. One Ka-1 was modified for trials with small auxiliary rockets at the tips of the rotor blades.
