The Kairyu was a class of kamikaze midget submarines of the Imperial Japanese Navy, designed in 1943-1944, and produced from the beginning of 1945. These submarines were meant to meet the invading American Naval forces upon their anticipated approach of Tokyo. These submarines had a two-man crew and were fitted with an internal warhead for suicide missions.
