Mitsubishi J2M Raiden a.k.a 'Jack'. This is an amazing piece of archive!

ATAIU SEA was the Allied Tactical Air Intelligence Unit, South East Asia. They evaluated captured enemy aircraft. I haven't seen those interesting pics before, but others of Zeros, Bettys etc in similar markings are fairly well-known.
