Built by Kawasaki. True serial number 252. Delivered to the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF). Assigned to an unknown Sentai. This bomber had green upper surfaces with a vertical white stripe on the rear fuselage. The top of the tail had "52" in white.
This bomber was abandoned at Lae Airfield near the tail wreckage of G6M1-L Betty 714.
During late September 1943, this aircraft was among the Japanese aircraft captured at Lae Airfield. Only the tail section remained intact, the front half was destroyed.
