Interesting photograph of a I-Go-1 Otsu attached under the fuselage of a Ki-48 Lily. The I-Go-1 was the Army Remote Controlled Flying Missile,that was rocket powered with a 300kg warhead, and a speed of 550-600km/h.

During tests some 50 missiles were fired and 150 of the missiles were built, the plant was destroyed by USAAF B-29s and further production became difficult, before the end of the war. The missile was powered by
T-Stoff and C-Stoff fuel and a Japanese design of the Walter HWK 109-509A
