     Imperial Japanese Navy was very impressed with the performance of Heinkel's newest fighter and purchased three He-100D-0, license to produce them in Japan and the set of jigs.  Those three planes arrived in Japan and were re-assembled in Kasumigaura, and under the name Navy Experimental Type He Interceptor Fighter were delivered to IJN for testing.
     Full scale production was planned at the new Hitachi plant in Chiba, but sets of plans and the jigs never arrived in Japan and the entire project was abandoned.
