The Nakajima Type-91 is a tier I Japanese fighter. It was built as a prototype to a request from the army, and it first flew in 1931. It became obsolete in 1936 with the coming of the Kawasaki Army Type 95 Fighter. 420 planes were built from 1931-1934.

Pros and Cons
- Almost all LTH pretty average: speed and agility is slightly worse than the American counterpart, but better weapons.
- The best indicator of the speed of the roll, an order of magnitude better than other start aircraft - 111 degrees per second. The other aircraft in the area of the figure 80.
- The lowest rate of HP strength. At 50 hitpoints, the Type-91 has the lowest health pool of all planes in WoWp. It is thus highly advised to use your agility and speed to avoid direct fire.
The Type-91 has good maneuverability, even better than the Soviet I-5, making it the most maneuverable of all tier I planes. It's speed is also very good for tier Is, only coming second after the American P-12
Pretty fast and maneuverable aircraft, with good speed roll that allows you to quickly turn the barrels and other complex shapes. That provides greater potential in a dogfight as dodging enemy fire and attack from the front, followed by entering the tail and counterattack. In many respects, the aircraft still quite low, knocked out, only a small number of strength, only 60 units, so the game on this unit must be careful, as in the following on any Japanese plane. Use maneuvers, do not go to frontal attacks, or in the first row, and then you will succeed.
The Army ordered the new aircraft as the Nakajima Army Type 91 Fighter and the first deliveries took place late in 1931. However, issues arose with both directional stability and centre of gravity, with the result that the type was delayed entering service.
Between 1931 and 1934, 420 aircraft were constructed (including 100 by Ishikawajima; 23 of the total were Type 91-2, powered by a 432 kW (580 hp) Nakajima Kotobuki 2 radial engine. This version first flew in July 1934.The Type 91 was supplanted in service by the Kawasaki Army Type 95 Fighter in 1936-7.
