Product description

The Type 2 Ka-Mi was Japan's first amphibious tank used during World War II. This light tank was specifically designed for amphibious operations and could operate on both land and water thanks to removable flotation devices. The flotation devices were jettisoned before landing to improve the tank's mobility and combat capability.

Areas of use: The Type 2 Ka-Mi was used primarily in the Pacific Theater, particularly in Japanese island defense operations. It was used in various amphibious landing operations, including the defense of the Philippines and other occupied islands.

For which country: Japan

Possible uses in tabletop games:

  • Bolt Action: The Type 2 Ka-Mi can be used as a unique element in Japanese army lists, ideal for scenarios involving river crossings or amphibious landings.
  • Flames of War: Offers an interesting option for Japanese forces to demonstrate amphibious capabilities on the field.
  • Chain of Command: Perfect for special missions that emphasize the use of amphibious capabilities in tactical maneuvers.

                                  The miniatures come to you unpainted and some of them have to be assembled by yourself - a little superglue can work wonders here! Sometimes there can be small residues or slight damage from the support structures, unfortunately these cannot always be completely avoided. But don't worry, this does not affect the quality of your model.

                                  However, it should be noted that due to the 3D SLA printing process, slight distortions (up to 1mm) may occur on larger parts. However, these small imperfections are easily fixed with modeling filler (Green Stuff).

                                  It's just a small part of the process that gives your set a unique character. Have fun painting and assembling!

                                  Although the figures are inviting to play with, it is important to remember that they are not suitable for small children. There is a risk that small parts can break off. Miniatures should not be considered toys.
