Yokosuka MXY15 "Max"
Another what-if plane that never existed.
About this creation

The Yokosuka MXY15 Allied Reporting Name "Max"

Another “What-if” project:

The Yokosuka MXY15 (allied reporting name: “Max”) was a Japanese point-defence rocket powered interceptor, which was to be used in a very similar way to a manned surface-to-air missile, armed with a automatic 90mm gun, design to destroy a heavy bomber with a few hits.

After the vertical take-off, which eliminated the need for airfields, the majority of the flight to the Allied bombers was to be controlled by an autopilot.
The plane could be launched from a fixed vertical launch system or from a small modified tank chassis. Below, the plane ready to be launch.

The plane is a copy from a plane that I saw on the Anime "Konpeki no kantai".



Hope you like it!

Quoting Frank Lavelle the biggest canon mounted on a WW 2 plane was the 75 mm that was mounted on the B-25 the recoil from the gun caused the plane to stay still for a second, the same gun was used in the Chaffe light tank
The weapon is a 90mm recoilless gun. No recoil.

great idea but from experience i can tell that this would probably be made of wood and the recoil from a 90mm cannon would probably rip it apart. It would be deadly to the pilot but, all for the emperor i guess. Creative build though, good work.

A very cool looking plane, I really like the look of the rear wing. I could really see this causing a problem for bombers, good thing they never built it!

Interesting concepts. You know, your ideas inspired me to do this little number, a nuclear kamikaze http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/298028

That ME-262 was the only plane with a 50mm cannon not other ME-262 had it,Also it never saw action they know how deadly a 50mm shell was onto a plane.Its the weight of the gun you gotta worry about sence back in the 40s jet engines were unreliable and underpowerd.I gotta admit your design and idea work's.Course if the plane was maybe longer and wider you could up the ammo count

Quoting Josh Guilbert 90mm gun? 90mm is WAY to large for a plane of this size to carry.You couldnt hold a good number of round's to.And in WW2 the US captured an ME-262 with a 50mm cannon in the nose capable of downing a B-17 in one well placed shot
Why not? Like you said "a 50mm cannon in the nose capable of downing a B-17 in one well placed shot", so a 90mm anywhere was a sure hit. And 5 rounds was enough to shoot down five bombers. Even if it“s to large for a plane of this size, it“s not a problem. 4 30mm guns make more recoil for 4 seconds firing than a single 90mm gun firing one round.
