The Nakajima Ki-87 was a Japanese high-altitude fighter-interceptor of World War II. It was a single seat, exhaust-driven turbo-supercharged engined, low-wing monoplane with a conventional undercarriage. Powered by a 3,000 hp Nakajima Ha-46-11 engine and with the turbo-supercharger under fuselage, never went further than the drawing board.
