The "Ka Mi" was the first amphibious tank used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). It was designed for Japanese landing forces performing amphibious invasions of Pacific islands not possessing regular port facilities. Production of the Type 2 commenced in 1942 and a total of 184 amphibious tanks were made. 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.
