In 1944-45 the Japanese adapted a number of their aircraft for suicide operations. .........That said, I'd rather have more mid- to late-war Japanese aircraft which were designed to be used more than once. In particular, the IJAAF needs more aircraft types.
The Kawasaki Ki-48 was used throughout the war and as an improvised Kamikaze and special Kamikaze. The thing is totally overlooked in most histories as it was a typical early war design light bomber which most countries found to be pretty useless (think Bristol Blenheim and Martin Maryland). Still it did serve in all Japanese theatres and was the most produced bomber of the IJAAF during WW2!

There is a il2 mod pack for Ki-48 but i don't know if the maker is still around to put it into "Daidalos il2".
