Design and Development

The Akajei Gyoshi was the final evolution of the Akajei lineage with development beginning in 2025. Designed to be a long range reconnaissance aircraft, the airframe underwent multiple changes to the point where the aircraft was barely recognizable as an Akajei. The wings were lengthened to increase the aircraft’s service ceiling and the engines were converted into a pusher layout. This was to allow the aircraft to fit tricycle landing gear rather than being a taildragger like every other Akajei before it. The aircraft was able to stay up in the air for about a week without refueling thanks to its highly efficient hydrogen-electric motors. As the hydrogen-electric motors didn’t need to take in air to function, the Akajei Gyoshi could serve in areas with extreme amounts of particles, like dust or ash, where other aircraft would flame out.
