--The I-13 (Type A2) is a quasi-same type ship I-12 (Type A1) that is a simplified engine of the Type A9 (Type A) built as a flagship submarine equipped with a surface reconnaissance aircraft. It was planned as the second ship.
――However, the number of submarine aircraft carriers I-400 (submarine special type) was reduced due to a shortage of materials during the war, and the design was significantly changed so that two surface attack aircraft, Aichi M6A, could be installed to compensate for this. ..
--The bridge is moved to the left side of the larger hangar, and is equipped with an injection machine and a large crane that conform to the submarine type.
--In addition, repairs such as installing a bulge on the hull to ensure stability against the increased displacement were carried out, and I-13 was put into service in December 1944 and I-14 was put into service in March 1945.
--The two ships, I13 and I14, disassembled and transported the onboard reconnaissance aircraft Ayakumo in preparation for the attack on the Ulithi Atoll by the I400 and I401 submarines, and set sail for the truck base for the purpose of reconnaissance there. ..
――I-14 arrived safely at the truck, but I-13 went missing, and the war ended without the Ulithi attack being realized.
