it was a great success and the main threat for US Navy

it was a disappointment
it was never used
Kaitens had a very limited diving depth, which in turn limited the diving depth of the host sub­ma­rine. This is one of several factors blamed for the very poor survival rate of sub­marines armed with kaitens: eight sub­marines being lost for the sinking of only two enemy ships and damaging several others.
