Built by Aichi. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). Assigned to the 582 Kokutai. Tail code 82-224.
Abandoned at Hoskins Airfield, probably force landed after a mission from Cape Gloucester Airfield (Tuluvu).
USMC photograph taken May 12, 1944 shows
tail number 82-224. Later, Australian forces photographed the same wreckage on September 10, 1944.
During the late 1970's, only the wings and center fuselage remain. It
is believed this aircraft was scrapped or otherwise disappeared sometime afterwards.
