Mitsubishi G4M "Hamaki" (Betty) Cockpit - 一式陸上攻撃機 コックピット

A rather interesting photo from a vintage magazine showing the cockpit of a Mitsubishi G4M. Of interest is the puzzling box behind the co-pilots seat on the port side. We think it's an intercom box. Check p. 96 of "Japanese Aircraft Equipment" by R. Mikesh. The navigator seems to have the microphone on.


昔の雑誌からの一式陸攻の写真です。
面白いところは、左舷副操縦席の後ろについている箱状の装置です。インターホンだと思うのですが、どう思いますか?

Very nice photo. I've not seen too many pics where it shows a crew member wearing an oxygen mask.
