This is a Nakajima-built Mitsubishi Zero (A6M5). Its exact identity is unknown. It was captured during the war, and ATAIU ("Allied Technical Air Intelligence Unit") markings applied by the RAF in Malaysia. It, along with three other Japanese aircraft ended up at Tebrau, and was then transported to Britain after the war, arriving in 1947. The central fuselage section is here in the Imperial War Museum and curiously its engine is on display at Cosford.
