Project for a high-speed fighter with heavy armament. A wooden mock-up was built by October 1943. However, the concept of the Ki-94-I was judged by the Japanese Army Air Force as too unconventional. The Tachikawa company was tasked to build an aircraft with a more conventional design. As a result, the Ki-94-II was created.

Before the capitulation of Germany in the war, the Junkers company managed to partially prepare the project documentation for the development of the Ju 287 V3 design. Further development was carried out with the participation of German designers, but already as part of the Soviet OKB-1 work. Only a single prototype was built.
