    The Mitsubishi Ki-46 was a twin-engine reconnaissance aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Army in WW II. Its Army Shiki designation was Type 100 Command Reconnaissance Aircraft, the Allied nickname was "Dinah". The aircraft, was a twin-engined, low-winged monoplane with a retractable tailwheel undercarriage. It had a small diameter oval fuselage which accommodated a crew of two, with the pilot and observer situated in individual cockpits separated by a large fuel tank. Further fuel tanks were situated in the thin wings both inboard and outboard of the engines, giving a total fuel capacity of 1,490 L (328 imperial gallons). The engines, two Mitsubishi Ha-26s, were housed in close fitting cowlings developed by the Aeronautical Research Institute of the Tokyo Imperial University to reduce drag and improve pilot view. In the variant Ki-46 III the ‘traditional’ stepped windshield replaced with a smooth, curved, glazed panel extended over the pilot's seat giving an aerodynamic nose. Engine power increased to 1,500 hp (Ha-112-II), extra fuel tank added in the nose.
