The National FS-SR023 cartridge is labelled 48ドット毛筆書体 (48 dots brush typeface), it is a 8Mbit cartridge released in 1987 by National for use with the National FS-4600F to allow it to print large typeface brush style text.

The cartridge contains a 48 dot "brush" style typeface and supports Kanji JIS1 and JIS2, Hiragana, Katakana, numerals, upper-case Latin and a selection of 54 additional characters.

This cartridge cannot be used a a regular Kanji-ROM. In fact the box has a warning on the back that the cartridge cannot be used with the FS-4500, FS-4700 or other word processing software for MSX2.

Note: It is unclear if it can be used with the Panasonic FS-PW1 cartridge inserted in another slot of a MSX2 computer. This cartridge has indeed the same features (Japanese Word Processor - thermal printer) as the FS-4600F computer.
