Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • One of the best turn times of all Tier 7 Aircraft. Great overall maneuverability. Can dominate in a furball.
  • Excellent ambusher. Will win most turn fight duels against other light fighters.
  • 30mm guns make it viable against Ground Attack craft. 30mm's have good overall stats.
  • Good service ceiling and decent top speed for a Japanese fighter
  • Surprisingly strong boost.


Cons:


  • 20 less HP than the A7M. Vulnerable to being set on fire.
  • 30mm guns overheat quickly.
  • Noticeably slow gun cooldown for the 30mm guns.
  • Low resistance to damage, will be shredded by turret fire and other planes in head-on attacks
  • Short boost duration.


Performance

If you found the Ki-61 lacking in firepower, the Ki-84 is the answer to your prayers. It has good maneuverability and altitude performance, topped-off with a set of devastating 20mm and 30mm autocannons. At Tier VII the Ki-84 is recognized as one of the most dangerous- if not THE most dangerous light fighter around. It can out-fly and out-turn most opponents, and quickly butcher them with its guns. For this reason the Ki-84 is a priority target for experienced players. The Ki-84 however has enough weaknesses that players should pay attention to in order to survive flying it- or flying against it. It is light and has notoriously low damage resistance. This translates to mediocre energy retention despite its good altitude performance; true energy fighters can exploit this by keeping momentum and having enough boost to spare. As with other Japanese light fighters, it cannot absorb punishment from other planes and is particularly vulnerable to turret-fire. This means that while the Ki-84 can kill planes quickly it is just as vulnerable when shot at. Avoid the temptation of going head-on with tougher planes and staying glued to ones with powerful turrets. The guns on the Ki-84 cool down slower than usual so controlled bursts is recommended to maximize their lethality. Overall the Ki-84 is an apex predator among light fighters of its tier and can punch well above its weight. Beware however of its limitations unless you want a quick trip to the respawn counter or the hangar.


Early Research

  • Prioritize research on the 20mm and 30mm autocannons
  • Next the airframe
  • Finally the engines to give it the speed in needs to survive


Historical Info

The Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate (キ84 疾風 "Gale"[Translation check needed]) was a single-seat fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Service in World War II. The Allied reporting name was "Frank"; the Japanese Army designation was Army Type 4 Fighter (四式戦闘機 yon-shiki-sentō-ki[Translation check needed]). Featuring excellent performance and high maneuverability, the Ki-84 was considered to be the best Japanese fighter to see large scale operations during World War II. It was able to match any Allied fighter, and to intercept the high-flying B-29 Superfortresses. Its powerful armament (that could include two 30 mm and two 20 mm cannon) increased its lethality. Though hampered by poor production quality in later models, a high-maintenance engine, landing gear prone to buckle, inconsistent fuel quality, and a lack of experienced pilots above all else, Hayates proved to be fearsome opponents; a total of 3,514 were built. The Ki-84 was the fastest fighter in the Imperial Japanese military if good fuel was used and the aircraft was in good shape.
