The Mitsubishi Ki-57 (allied code name: Topsy ) was a passenger aircraft that was designed as a low-wing aircraft due to the demand from Japan Air Lines for a civil version of the Mitsubishi Ki-21 bomber .
The first flight took place in August 1940. After the successful testing, the production of 100 series machines began as MC-20-1 for civil purposes and as Ki-57-1 transport aircraft for military purposes. The improved Ki-57-2 followed in early 1942 and had u. a. a stronger motorization. 406 copies of this version were built.
