According to Nedialkov's In the Skies of Nomonhan (2011) p. 141
Confirmed losses Ki-30: Shot down in aerial combat: 11; Lost for other reasons 7; Total 18

Re: Ki-30

Hello Oleg. I am very sorry for my delayed response.
The following are Ki 30 (Army Type 97 Light-Bomber) losses with the dead(s) during the Battles of Khalkhyn Gol.

3. Jul. 1939. 10th Flight Regiment, Ki 30 s/n 219, shot down by AAA at the vicinity of a fording head of River Khalkhyn Gol. Pilot: 1LT (the first name not mentioned in the document) SHIRABE, WIA; Observer: 2LT Sabrô TAKAHATA, KIA.

23. Jul. 1939. 10th FR, Ki 30 s/n 126, shot down by enemy fighters at the left bank of River Khalkhyn Gol roughly 4 km west from Sambur Obo. Pilot: SSG Kôichi MIYAZAWA, KIA; Gunner: CPL Chôjirô UEHARA, KIA.

24. Jul. 1939. 16th FR, Ki 30 s/n 159, shot down by enemy fighters at “Komatsu” Height. Pilot: CPL Seiji KAMIIDE, KIA; Gunner: SGT Ichirô MIYAZAKI, KIA.

3. Aug. 1939. 10th FR, Ki 30 s/n 118, shot down by enemy fighters at roughly 4 km south-west from 742 Height. Pilot: SSG Yoshio MATSUZAKI, KIA; Gunner: SSG Fukuyoshi UCHIDA, KIA.

21. Aug. 1939. 16th FR, Ki 30 s/n 170, shot down by enemy fighters at roughly 15 km south-east from Halhamiao. Pilot: SGT Tadao KATÔ, KIA; Gunner: SSG Shigeo KOBAISHI, KIA.

27. Aug. 1939. 10th FR, Ki 30 s/n 127, shot down by enemy fighters at “Uzuru-sui”. Pilot: SSG Takeo OKIURA, KIA; Gunner: CPL Isao AZETSU, KIA.

30. Aug. 1939. 16th FR, Ki 30 s/n 99, shot down by enemy fighters at 3 km north from Lake Abutara. Pilot: SSG Makoto ITÔ, KIA; Gunner: SGT Tomie ISHIZUKI, KIA.

31. Aug. 1939. 31st FR, Ki 30 s/n ?, attacked by enemy fighters and emergency landing at the vicinity of Chiangchunmiao. Pilot: CAP (the first name not mentioned in the document) SAITÔ, unhurt; Gunner: 2LT Takeo HIDAKA, KIA.

31. Aug. 1939. 31st FR, Ki 30 s/n ?, shot down by enemy fighters at 3 km south from “Saienjo”-North airfield. Pilot: CAP Jirô INOUE, KIA; Gunner 1LT Shigeyoshi NEGAMI, KIA.

On 27th Jun. 1939, Håkan’s web page says “Japanese reported three Ki-27s and one Ki-30 from the 10th Sentai as lost and acknowledged a single Ki-21 from the 61st Sentai making a forced landing” and a Russian claim of a Ki 15 “must have mistaken it for a similarly shaped Ki-30”.

But Japanese documents say that Japan’s losses were three Ki 27s (11th FR), two Ki 15s (15th FR), one Ki 21 (61st FR), and no Ki 30 on that day. Thus the Russian recognition of the claim was probably right.

Best regards.

Re: Ki-30

Many thanks JYoung (and if Japanese Young-San)

Very interesting and highly detailed response. May I ask if you have such detailed information regarding all Japanese losses during the conflict in question?

If yes, do you intend to publish something about it or would you be interested in sharing such details with all of us here on TOCH?

Cheers
Stig

Hi Stig.
Thank you so much for your generous words. I don’t have all Japanese losses, but I am willing to share data. I will send here when I will collect enough data.

Best regards.
JYoung
