WHAT BECAME OF TACHIKAWA:

Tachikawa Aircraft Co. Ltd. was owed and operated by the (IJAAF) Imperial Japanese Army Air Force. The Imperial Army even had its own Research & Development and Testing Center.
It was separate from the (IJN) Imperial Japanese Navy both services never worked with each other and had separate aircraft development and testing programs.

WARS END: OUT OF BUSINESS

At the end of WWII Japan's aviation industry was
dismantled, design work stopped, blueprints and research data destroyed. Aircraft surrendered
were destroyed or inspected by the USAAF its former aircraft plants were converted to produce civilian goods.
The ban on aircraft development was lifted 1949/50, Tachikawa started to build training aircraft However, it failed to win any new contracts, the Company continued to assemble aircraft components and other non-related aviation products.
In the post-war years many of its former aircraft designers, engineers, technicians and other specialist were later employed in the automotive industry such as Toyota and Nissan. Today, Tachikawa is know known as Tachihi Kigyo that builds consumer goods, electronics and automotive parts.

WARS END:

Tachikawa Aircraft Manufacturing Company Ltd.
was owned and operated by the Imperial Army
it also had a Center for Research & Development
it created its own designs and tested its aircraft
Before WWII and during the war, both the Army
and Navy never worked together each had its own aircraft programs.

OUT OF BUSINESS:

At the end of WWII Japan's Aviation Industry was dismantled by the Allies. The USAAF tested
captured aircraft a few were shipped back to the USA and the UK. Surviving planes were scrapped
aircraft plants were converted to produce civilian
goods. The Japanese were able to destroy most of their research data, blue prints, jigs and other aircraft assemblies.
By 1950 the ban on aircraft production was lifted, Tachikawa built training planes, but failed to win any contracts. The company continued to build components and sub-assemblies and non-aviation related products. Today, Tachikawa is now known as Tachuiti Kigyo producing consumer goods, electronics and automotive parts.

After WWII many of the designers, engineers, technicians and other specialist were later employed by Toyota, Nissan and other Japanese
industries...
