This variant of the D4Y was designated D4Y2-S, a Nightfighter Version and as such was modified to carry an upward forward firing Cannon in the rear fuselage protruding up through the Canopy at approx. 30 degrees.

This aircraft was flown by Chief Petty Officer Yoshimitsu Naka and Lt. Junior Grade Hisao Kanazawa of the 302nd Naval Air Group, based at Atsugi Air base in Kanagawa Prefecture, approximately 50km Southwest of Tokyo.

This D4Y and Crew was by far the most successful aircraft of this version of Nightfighter claiming 5 Confirmed and 3 Probable/Damaged. As shown by the Victory markings on the vertical tail.
