Tachikawa Ki-94-I Experimental Hi Altitude Intercepter
The army ordered Tachikawa's trial production of the high-altitude intercepter in 1943. Tachikawa presented a very bold plan to this order. It is the plan 1.
This plan was the twin body, the twin boom-type. Two engines were arranged before and behind the central body. The first three wheel-type landing gear and pressure cockpit were adopted in Japan.
But, as for this plan, there was impossibility in the arrangement position of the exhaust turbine. Then, this wasn't being considered about the pilot's escape. Japanese pilots weren't accustomed to three wheel-type landing gear.
Therefore the plan 1 wasn't adopted.
If the plan 1 is manufactured as an experiment, the vibration of the tail, cooling of the engine, and so on may have been problems.

Nakajima Ki-201 "Karyuu" Jet Intercepter / Attacker
The data for the Me262 jet intercepter were brought to Japan from Germany by 1944.
The fighter "Ki-201 Karyuu" was developed with Nakashima based on this data.
This project was the joint development of the imperial army and navy.
"Karyuu" expanded Me262. However, development progressed slowly.
Pacific war was ended at the moment when a production drawing was completed.
