Aircraft History
True serial number 199, completed during November 1942.

Wartime History
Abandoned at Nubia Airfield at Hansa Bay, partially scrapped.

Justin Taylan visited this wreck in 2003:
"Although i found no dataplates or stencils to confirm this bomber is 1199, it is the only other wreckage of a Lily at the airfield, thus is very likely 1199."

Jim Long adds:
"Another Ki-48 examined at Hansa Bay was No. 1199, from which an engine nameplate was recovered. The engine was Ha 115 No. 173 (an experimental or early-production engine of the run of Type 2 1150 HP Engines which powered the Ki-48-II). The engine was made by the Musashino factory of the Nakajima Aircraft Co. in June 1942. The engine was probably original equipment for the bomber."

Thanks to Jim Long for additional information.
