1/72 IJN Type 2 "Ka-Mi" w/Floating Pontoon Early Production, Kwajalein Island 1944

The “Ka Mi” was the first amphibious tank used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), and it was based on the Type 95 “Ha-Go”light tank. It as designed for Japanese landing forces performing amphibious invasions of Pacific Islands and regular port facilities. Production of the Type 2 commenced in 1942 and a total of 184 amphibious tanks were made, although the design was too late to participate in Japan’s island-hopping campaign. When used in water, large pontoons were attached to the glacis plate and rear deck to give it a top speed of 10km/h in water. These pontoons could be shed as soon as the vehicle reached land.

 

Tank is new in box, never removed. Box is in excellent condition
