About Tokusetsu Kanshitei

The IJN called converted patrol boats "Tokusetsu Kanshitei". Their main task was to patrol on picket line. Three hundered ninety three fishing ships and fifteen government crafts were used as Tokusetsu-kanshitei between 1937 and 1945. "Biwa Maru 11 Go" was removed from the navy list before the outbreak of the Pacific War. "Sasayama Maru No.1", "Tenyu Maru No.2" and "Juntoku Maru" were only used at the military exercise in 1937.
