  • Ho-203 - Japanese 37 mm autocannon. It was fed by a 15-round closed-loop ammunition belt. It was operationally used only as the nose gun of the Kawasaki Ki-45-KAI heavy fighter, for anti-bomber operations of Imperial Japanese Army (IJA), and on the upper fuselage of Mitsubishi Ki-46.
- removing the paint on the upper fuselage and the back-seat --> reduce the weight and resistance, lighter and faster, for attacking high-altitude bombers (B-29).
