Nakajima G8N1 "Renzan" experimental four-engine, long-range, land-based bomber (Allied reporting name: Rita), Navy 18-Shi specification An all-metal, seven-seat cantilever monoplane with retractable nose landing gear. After the creation of the G5N bomber failed, the Nakajima Aircraft Company's designers were forced to radically reconsider their methods for designing heavy multi-engine machines, now that they had some experience. In late 1942, leaders of the Imperial Japanese Navy issued new requirements for a land-based bomber that would replace the obsolescent G4M in the very near future. In February 1943, the Nakajima Company was offered to develop such a bomber, after preliminary 18-Shi requirements were issued for a maritime experimental aircraft. An official specification for it was formulated by September of the same year. The specification called for a well-protected machine with powerful defensive armament, which would reach a maximum speed of 592 km/h and have a full bomb capacity of 4,000 kg. The first prototype of the G8N1 bomber was ready by October 1944, and it got off the ground for the first time on October 23. The aircraft came to have four Nakajima NK9K-L Homare 24 eighteen-cylinder air-cooled engines with Hitachi 92 turbocompressors, which could produce a maximum takeoff power of 2,000 hp. The G8N1 bomber had unprecedented power in its defensive armament. The nose turret housed twin 13 mm Type 2 (Rheinmetall-Borsig MG 131) machine guns with 200 rounds each. Each of two fuselage blister gun mounts housed one 13 mm Type 2 machine gun with 300 rounds each. The lower electric turret, capable of 360-degree fire, housed two 20 mm Type 99 Model 1 (Oerlikon FF) cannons with 200 rounds each. The upper electrically driven turret, capable of 360-degree fire, was equipped with two 20 mm Type 99 Model 1 cannons with 300 rounds each. The rear power-driven turret had two 20 mm Type 99 Model 1 cannons with 300 rounds each. The G8N1 bomber's combat load was carried only internally. Bombs ranging from 60 kg to 2,000 kg, in various combinations, could be suspended in the bomb bay. The standard payload was 2,000 kg within maximum mission flight range. The maximum bomb capacity was 4,000 kg.
