the incivil beast is correct! Well done. The Rogozarski (Ikarus) IK-3 was well-respected among pilots. It was built in the same factory that produced the Yugoslavian licensed-built Hawker Hurricane. One IK-3 had a Rolls-Royce Merlin III engine installed, just in time for the German invasion, and was destroyed along with other examples in the factory.

Not a Mitsubishi Ki-46 'Dinah. This aircraft was a rare aircraft and was for two crew.

Yokosuka R2Y Keiun.

evansb takes the accolade once again. It was the Yokosuka R2Y Keiun.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Yokosuka R2Y Keiun (景雲 - "Beautiful Cloud") was a prototype reconnaissance aircraft built in Japan late in World War II.
Commissioned for the Imperial Japanese Navy after the Yokosuka R1Y design was cancelled due to its disappointing performance estimates, the R2Y borrowed from the German pre-war Heinkel He 119 in its use of coupled engines driving a single propeller. It also featured a tricycle undercarriage arrangement that was possibly influenced by the Messerschmitt Me 509.
Completed in April 1945, the prototype made a short flight on May 8, but was destroyed in a US air raid only a few days later, thus ending development.
A proposal was also made to develop the R2Y into a turbojet-powered light bomber by replacing its piston engines with two Ishikawajima Ne-330s. Designated the R2Y2 Keiun-Kai, little progress on the design was made before the end of the war.
