About Tokusetsu Unsosen (Kyuyusen)

The IJN called auxiliary oilers "Tokusetsu Unsosen (Kyuyusen)". Their main task was to transport fuel such as heavy oil, light oil, gasoline and so on. Seventy merchant ships, one Admiralty ship and five raised ships were used as Tokusetsu-unsosen (Kyuyusen) between 1937 and 1945. Kyokuto Maru was transferred to Tokusetsu-unsokan in 1940.
