Fusetsu-tokumutei

About Fusetsu-tokumutei

When ex-Fusetsutei was upgraded from Tokumutei to Kantei on 1 February 1944, this class was newly established for small minelayers. Fusetsutei No. 2 was lost in 1942, so it was never listed as Fusetsu-tokumutei, but I will introduce it here for convenience. The small minelayer "Natsushima" and "Sokuten" had already been removed from the navy list before 1944, so they were never listed as Fusetsu-tokumutei.
