Aircraft History
Built by Nakajima.

Ryan Toews adds:
"The one photo of the engine and you can see that the ring that the cowling is attached to has a U shaped bend. This is to accomdate the MG barrel. On the M3 this ring is circular without the U shaped bend and the barrel goes underneath the ring. I am especially intrigued by the CG stencil, I only have seen Mitsubishi's version and I am pretty sure this is a Nakajima built model 21."

Wartime History
Destroyed on the ground on Ballale Airfield, likely during a take off or landing accident.

Wreckage
Twisted upside down and engine seporated from the fuselage. The armament is removed, possibly during the war.
