Ummm, so, a speculative article about the Nakajima Kikka Me262 knock off and staring us in the face is a MXY-7 Ohka - that which the Americans called a "Baka" - certainly never a fighter and which, by the way, was not a jet as the article states, but was rocket powered. I love journalists and their editors who have not a clue.
