Su-Ki is the amphibious truck developed by IJA. It is based on Toyota 4x4 Truck "To-Ki". Su-Ki was deployed in the forces on the Pacific islands.

A plough/ski-shaped four-wheel drive amphibious vehicle whose development was based on the KCY truck was produced between November 1943 and August 1944 in a run of 198 units. The chassis of the KCY four-wheel drive truck thus became the basis of subsequent Toyota all-wheel drive technology.

Experimental "Toyota LVT" from World War II was produced as a result of the su-ki.
