Item DescriptionThe “Ka Mi” was the first amphibious tank used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), and it was designed for Japanese landing forces performing amphibious invasions of Pacific islands sans 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. Dragon’s previous kit featured an Early-Production set of pontoons, while this newest kit offers Late-Production pontoons.
