Aircraft History
Built by Nakajima. Assigned to the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF). Assigned to the ? Sentai. No known markings or tail code.

Wartime History
Abandoned at Danip Airstrip (Alexishafen I), its engine is removed to the side of the aircraft.

Wreckage
Heavily overgrown, nearly all of the aircraft has been scrapped, but it is still standing on its gear legs, sunken into the ground.

Justin Taylan adds:
"What was interesting about this wreck is that the metal linkages for 7.7mm ammunition are still scattered around the wreck.  Over the decades, someone took the bullets, but this aircraft was likely armed and on the flightline when abandoned or damaged."
