Mitsubishi Ki-51
The MITSUBISHI KI-51 (Army designation "TYPE 99 ASSAULT PLANE". Allied nickname "SONIA") was a light bomber /dive bomber in service with the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II . It first flew in mid-1939. Initially deployed against Chinese forces, it proved to be too slow to hold up against the fighter aircraft of the other Allied powers. However, it performed a useful ground-attack role in the China-Burma-India theater , notably from airfields too rough for many other aircraft. As the war drew to a close, they began to be used in kamikaze attacks. Total production was around 2,385 units. On the day Hiroshima was destroyed by an atomic bomb , two Ki-51s scored the last Japanese sinking of a US warship, sinking USS Bullhead (SS-332) with all hands. Charles Lindbergh , flying a P-38 Lightning shot down a Ki-51 after a vigorous dogfight in which the much slower Ki-51 utilized its low speed maneuverability and made a fight of it

Lavochkin La-7
The LAVOCHKIN LA-7 (Russian : Лавочкин Ла-7) was a piston-engined Soviet fighter developed during World War II by the Lavochkin Design Bureau (OKB ). It was a development and refinement of the Lavochkin La-5 , and the last in a family of aircraft that had begun with the LaGG-1 in 1938. Its first flight was in early 1944 and it entered service with the Soviet Air Forces later in the year. A small batch of La-7s was given to the Czechoslovak Air Force the following year, but it was otherwise not exported. Armed with two or three 20 mm (0.79 in) cannon, it had a top speed of 661 kilometers per hour (411 mph). The La-7 was felt by its pilots to be at least the equal of any German piston-engined fighter. It was phased out in 1947 by the Soviet Air Force, but served until 1950 with the Czechoslovak Air Force
