A Daihatsu Landing Craft outfitted with a Type 89 I-Go medium tank, it is also accompanied by marine forces. It was designed to destroy pillboxes in China and support infantry in open field but it surprisingly also excelled in the cramped, jungle environments of the Philippines and Southeast Asia. Its low speed, artillery and armor was enough for its intended support role in early 1930, but was later outclassed by newer Allied armor and the change to a more defensive stance of the war.
