The Nakajima G5N Shinzan was a four-engined, twin tailed long-range heavy bomber designed and built for the Imperial Japanese Navy prior to World War II. In order to reach 3,000 nmi (5,600 km; 3,500 mi) with a war load, the new design would be a four engine airframe, a formula never study by japanese engineers. The prototype of the Douglas DC-4E was purchased by Nippon Koku K.K. (Japan Airlines Co) and clandestinely handed over to the Nakajima Aircraft Company for dismantling and inspection. Of the six completed Shinzans, four of them were relegated for use as long-range Navy transports under the designation G5N2-L Shinzan-Kai Transport due to poor performance as a result of a combination of excessive weight, the unreliability of the 1,870 hp engines or lack of power of the 1,530 hp replacement engines.
