The No.1 class auxiliary submarine chaser (第一号型駆潜特務艇, Dai Ichi Gō-gata Kusen-Tokumutei?) was a class of submarine chasers of the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), serving during World War II. 200 vessels were built under the Maru Kyū Programme (Ship # 500–599) and the Maru Sen Programme (Ship # 2001–2100).

Background[]

  • In 1939, the IJN wanted the point-defence subchaser for defence of their naval bases. In 1940, they built small prototype submarine chasers (No.1182 and No.1183) from a standard wooden fishing boat.
  • The IJN made a try of them, and they confirmed that it was effective subchaser. In 1941, the IJN ordered 100 vessels.
  • In the wartime, their performance were good. However, they were always troubled by insect damage, because their hull was wood.
  • They who survived war played an active part for minesweeping of magnetic mines.
