The Mamiya was a supply ship with refrigerated compartments capable of carrying provisions for 18,000 men for three weeks and stalls for 50 head of cattle. She was also capable of transporting a small number of aircraft on her afterdeck, and she had unusually good communications equipment. She was sometimes used to simulate an American battleship during fleet exercises.
Mamiya was operating with Combined
Fleet out of Yokosuka
when war broke out and was torpedoed
on 20 December 1944
off Hainan by Sealion.
