The Shinden is an aircraft featured in the movie The Princess And The Pilot. It is the front-line fighter-interceptor of the Amatsukami Imperium, featuring a radical rear-wing inverted gull-wing canard design with contra-rotating pusher-configuration propellers. It is suggested to be the most advanced fighter in the world, as well as being the fastest. It is armed with 4 forward-firing cannons, 2 in the nose and 2 in the wings.
The aircraft is heavily inspired from the real life Kyushu J7W1 Shinden interceptor of World War II. The design may also have been inspired from the Rostock Sanka MkB from the movie The Sky Crawlers, itself based on the J7W1 Shinden.
