History[edit | edit source]
Built by Mitsubishi as C/n 3203 and assigned to 14th Kokutai, bearing tail code 9-122 this aircraft, flown by Lt. Motonari Suho, was shot down in 1940 and force landed on Weichow Island. The aircraft was subsequently captured and tested, most probably as P-5014. Lt. Motonari Suho must have managed to evade capture, because he went on to become an ace during WW2. The eventual fate of the aircraft is unknown.
