In early 1900s, IJA imported some trucks from France or Germany and recognized the importance of automobile. IJA decided to build trucks in Japan, but there was no automobile company in Japan those days. So, they were built at IJA arsenals. The first trial was built in 1911. The third trial was adopted by IJA as Official 4-ton Truck in 1917. They were used at Tsingtao during WWI. Approx. 20 units were produced by TGE.
