At the time of flotation, like the 94 type water border mine laying equipment, the buoyancy is improved by tilting the left and right floats. Unlike the 94 type water borne mine laying equipment (propeller), the propulsion system at the time of navigation uses two water jets.

The spec is about 12 m in length, about 3.5 m in total width, about 3.5 m in total height, about 20 t in weight, about 6 t in payload. MTU 8 V 199 diesel engine (output 530 kw) is adopted as the main engine, NAMJET TJ 381 of the United States is adopted as the water jet, the maximum speed on road is 70 km / h, the maximum floating speed is 9 knots (16.7 km) / h, Operation with sea state 3 is possible.
