Originally intended as a portable ground-based radar, the Japanese Type 13 radar was installed on ships and submarines as well as shore. It was also known as the Mark 1 Model 3 Type 3.

Sources conflict, but there are some indications that some ship and shore installations may have used two dipole arrays in place of the vertical dipole and Yagi mattress antennas.
