Product Description

The Kyokuyo Maru was originaly build as an whale factory ship. Before the WW II she make several anctarctic voyages in this role. Shortly after the war begins, the IJN takes the Kyokuyo Maru in service as an auxiliary oiler. She makes many trips to the oilfields of Brunei and Sumatra. Several times she was used as troop transport to Rabaul and other occupied islands. In January 1943 she was hit by 2 torpedoes of USS Trout, and was repaired in Singapore. In 1943 she was attacked two more times by US submarines, USS Pompano and USS Tambor, but all of the five torpedoes who are hitting her were dud. So she was a very lucky ship. Her fate was an air attack by TF 58 carrier planes after she was grounded in a typhoon near the island of Amami-Oshima between Tawiwan and the japannese Mainland. Several other japanese whale factory ships are build like the Kyokuyo Maro with only minimal differences.

Die Kyokuyo Maru wurde vor dem WW II als Walfang-Fabrikschiff gebaut. In dieser Rolle unternahm sie einige Reisen in die Anktarktis. Kurz nach Kriegsausbruch wirde die Kyokuyo Maru als Hilfstanker durch die kaiserlich japanische Marine in Dienst gestellt. Sie unternahm dieverse Versorgungsfahrten zu den Ölfeldern der eroberten Gebiete, diente aber auch als Truppentransporter zu den besetzten Inseln. Im Januar 1943 erhielt sie zwei Torpedotreffer durch die USS Trout und wurde daraufhin in Singapur repariert. Noch zwei mal wurde die Kyokuyo Maru 1943 durch US U-Boote angegriffen (USS Pompino und USS Tambor) Doch alle fünf Torpedoes die das glückhafte Schiff trafen waren Zündversager. Das Schicksal der Kyokuyo Maru erfüllte sich, nachdem es bei einem Wirbelsturm in der Nähe der Insel Amami-Oshima auf Grund lief und später durch Trägerflugzeuge der TF 58 zerbombt wurde. EInige andere japanische Walfang-Fabrikschiffe wurden nachdem gleuchen Muster wie die Kyokuyo Mara gebaut und unterschieden sich nur in Details.
