The J7W1 Shinden was developed by the Japanese in the closing months of WWII as an aircraft which would be effective against the ever more numerous American heavy bombers like the B-29. The aircraft employed a radical pusher configuration with the engine in the rear and also featured canards instead of a conventional tailplane. The prototype undertook three flight tests in August 1945 but the war ended before the type's potential could be fully explored.
