    Thanks and Regards Sailor.

    Yes, Sailor , I agree on that Nakajima Kikka J9Y has been helped by Germans during 2nd World war and the picture of Me 262 is proof of that this aircraft J9Y was influenced by Me 262. However, in fact the main help has came from German on the technology of engine, the powerplant was based on German BMW003 and named as Ishikawajima Ne 20. Design compared to Me 262, reveals body is smaller and wings straight rather than swept, landing gear based on Mitsubishi Zero and nose wheel on Yokosuka P1Y. (Source: Wikipedia)
