Aircraft History
Built by Kawasaki. Assigned to an unknown Sentai.

Wartime History
Wartime history unknown. Captured during the occupation of Japan, and flown to the USA for technical evaluation, then donated to the Smithsonian in 1946 as a fuselage only. The engine and wings were either lost or scrapped.

Restored to preserve its state, and in storage at the NASM's Paul E. Garber Facility until 2003. Today, it is displayed at the NASM Udvar-Hazy Center.
