As with many other Japanese fighter types combating air raids over Japan, the Ki-200 was considered for use in ramming attacks against B-29's. The envisioned mission profile was to make one or two firing passes and then, with the remaining energy, conduct a ramming attack. Any fuel left on board would most likely detonate, increasing the effectiveness of the attack, but also meaning the pilot had little chance of survival. Nevertheless, the cost was deemed to be worth it and plans were made.

Dornier Do 335 PFEIL ("Arrow") was a World War II heavy fighter built by the Dornier company.  The two-seater trainer version was called Ameisenbär ("anteater"). Its performance was much better than other twin-engine designs due to its unique "push-pull" layout and the much lower aerodynamic drag of the in-line alignment of the two engines. It was Germany's FASTEST piston-engined aircraft of World War II.The Luftwaffe was desperate to get the design into operational use, but delays in engine…
