Abandoned on its launching blocks in the submarine pens of Kiska Harbor. It was damaged by internal demolition charges set by the Japanese, and exposure to weather and souvenir hunters. Originally there were three midgets when the Allies liberated.

Ko-hyoteki Ko Gata Type-A midget submarines were 78.5 feet long, displaced 46 tons, were armed with two muzzle-loaded torpedoes, and had a crew of two. Normally, they were transported to and from their target areas on the decks of larger Type C1 submarines. About 60 Type A's were built and were the first midgets to be deployed.
