Built by Kawasaki. True serial number 314. Assigned to the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF). Assigned to ? Sentai.
Operated from New Guinea. Abandoned at Alexishafen Airfield.
Manufacture number noted by Charles Darby.
CEAR "Japanese Aircraft Makers' Plates and Markings" page 12 notes 1314 as built mid February 1943, abandoned March 15, 1944 and lists its location as Dumpu, NG.
Note, it is unclear if part of "1314" was abandoned at Alexishafen or the wreckage at Dumpu was indeed this aircraft, or Allied intelligence incorrectly noted the manufacture number.
