The Special Type 4 “Ka-Tsu” as used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), was essentially a 16-ton amphibious landing craft able to sail with a top speed of 5 knots and to 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.
