IJN Special Type 4 "Ka-Tsu" Amphibious Tracked Vehicle. Scale 1:35

DR6839- Dragon Models

This Dragon kit is the Special Type 4 “Ka-Tsu” as used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). It was essentially a 16-ton amphibious landing craft able to swim in water (top speed of 5 knots) and to also drive on land carrying troops and/or cargo. Thus it could be considered an equivalent of the American DUKW.

It was 11m long and operated by a crew of five. It came about from Japanese experience in the Solomon Islands, where it was difficult to resupply troops by sea.
