I see this video in Youtube that look like 40 mm AA on Shokaku-class aircraft carrier (probably). Did IJN mount those 40 mm Bofors on their aircraft carrier? If yes, when?

 

To me, it look like 40 mm Bofors in IJN aircraft carrier.

Found it, it's from Zuikaku.

Let's assume it's 25mm Type 96 with conventional-designed gun shield. She doesn't even have 40mm AA in the records.

They have captured 40 mm Bofor and create prototype as 4 cm/60 Type 5 but never deploy[1].
