Japanese WWII Ka-Tsu 1/72 (smaller than the origianl) - created for playing it with the book "Great Asia war" Frontline available here: http://www.redoctopus.de! The special Type 4 Launch Ka-Tsuwas an amphious landing craft in WWII. The first prototype was completed in late 1943 and trials were conducted off Kure in March 1944. By the time development had been completed, it was proposed that the Ka-Tsu be used to attack US battleships anchored in atolls , which could not readily be attacked using conventional means. It was proposed that a Ka-Tsu armed with a pair of torpedoes be dropped off by submarine away from the atoll, propel itself to the outer reef using its tracks, and then enter the lagoon on the inside of the reef. The tests were successfully carried out with a modified Ka-Tsu carrying two torpedoes on its deck, but the war ended before any such mission could be mounted and the Ka-Tsu deployed in combat.
