Fusetsutei

About Fusetsutei

Fusetsutei is a small minelayer/netlayer. This category (Shubetsu) was added to the order for vessels (Kansenrei) on 31 January 1944 by the navay command No.2 (Gunrei No. Kai-2). There was Fusetsutei as one of the class (Ruibetsu) in the category of auxiliary boats (Tokumutei) before 31 January 1944. Ukishima, Hirashima and Hoko were removed from the navy list before 1 February 1944, so that they were not included in this category officially. I, however, put them on this page for convenience of the layout.
