Built by Mitsubishi during early January 1943. Assigned to an unknown Kōkūtai (Air Group). Ultimate fate unknown.
Ryan Toews adds:
"[Regarding AWM photo captions that cite this aircraft as 3479] Problem: 3479
is the manufacture number of A6M3 Model 22 Zero 3479. The photos of the three Zeros surrendered are all A6M5 Zeros. However, 4379 would be A6M5 Model 52 Zero 4379 manufactured during December 1943. Was the manufacture number transposed when the photo caption at AWM were recorded? [likely, the correct manufacture number was 4379] "
