During WWII, Japanese forces developed the Komatsu G40 Bulldozer to assist in airfield construction. This was 1st bulldozer manufactured by the Japanese. 100 and forty-eight G40 bulldozers had been built throughout the war. The G40 ended up being provided for the north and southern fronts, but due to the war few was able to reach their assigned airfields. Only one G40 survived the war, and that can be viewed at the Komatsu Techo Center in Shizuka, Japan. The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers recognized the vehicle in 2007 as a Mechanical Engineering Heritage item.
