Built by Nakajima. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). Assigned to an unknown Kōkūtai. No known markings or tail code.
Disabled or abandoned at Kara Airfield (Buin Airport).
Until the early 1980s, the center section of this Zero remained without any canopy. Nearby, a tail section and engine remain that might be associated with this Zero. Nearby is another A6M2 Zero center section.
