I'm not sure if people have already posted about this aircraft or not but here it is. It was initially designed as a float plane fighter but later the floats were removed and a retractable landing gear was added. It was a perfect match for the F6F Hellcat and was capable of taking on the F4U Corsair and the P51 Mustang. This plane could take a lot of hits and had a powerful armament. It was code named George by the allies.  General characteristicsPerformanceArmament
  • 4× 20 mm Type 99 Model 2 Mk 4 cannon in wings. 200 rounds per gun (up from 100 rounds per gun internally and 70 rounds per gun in underwing boots for the early N1K1-J). The 20×101 mm round had an effective range of 1,000 m (3,280 ft) and a muzzle velocity of 700 m/s (2,297 ft/s). The 128 g shell had 6-8% HE. Rate of fire was about 500 rounds/min per gun. The guns were synchronized to converge at 200 m (656 ft).
