The Japanese military made extensive use of this multi-purpose 6x6 utility truck throughout World War II. It was a reliable vehicle with good cross-country capability enabled by its relatively high ground clearance; it also had relatively low fuel consumption. The Type 94 could carry up to twelve people or 1.3 tons of cargo. The Isuzu company of Japan started producing the Type 94 in 1934 to meet Imperial Japanese Army requirements, and through 1945 they had built thousands of the type. As a general utility and troop transport vehicle, Isuzu developed variants to fit specific roles. Diesel engines were standard for the Type 94, but Isuzu also produced some gasoline-powered variants.
