J7W Shinden is one of the planes that appear in Strikers 1945 and it's sequel.
In Strikers 1945 II, the Shinden J7W has the most powerful Supershot attack, the Samurai Sword. It generates and throws a plasma copy of itself forward. This attack can destroy any enemy and even half-dead bosses instantly! Its only downside is that it covers an extremely small area, clearing only the bullets in front of the Shinden.

- In the first game, the pilot of this aircraft is Ayin, one of the characters from Sengoku Ace, and a guest character in Gunbird II.
- In the android version, this aircraft is also available from the start along with the P-38 Lightning.
- It is also from the 1942 series in the three latest games
