Built by Mitsubishi at Nagoya No. 3 Works. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). Assigned an unknown Kōkūtai.
This bomber ditched into Truk Lagoon.
At one time, 38 incendiary bombs were removed from the bomber as
a precaution for SCUBA divers. Reportedly, a sake and cognac
bottle were found under the pilot's seat. The large plane is relatively
free of marine growth. 7.7mm and 20mm guns, radios and boxes are
still inside the plane. Although it is illegal to remove artifacts from the wreck, some items have been removed over the years by divers.
