Is there any indication that it is a japanese truck? Might be an american truck. Just my opinion.

The engine on this chassis is stripped down and has a bit of chain still hanging on the engine manifolds.  It was a stripped chassis before it was dumped in the water.  No cable on the winch.  Was a non running strip down before it was dumped.  No front metal , no radiator or fuel system including carburetor and I recall no steering assembly.  No body shell and it is setting right side up, not upside down.

could be a result of bombardment which sunk on the sea. It can easily be seen if treasure are loaded with it...however, its' a nice fine

Quite possibly it is a code marker.  No one is going to the effort to dump a stripped chassis in the water for no reason other than laughs ( unless it was Americans dumping stuff in the water after the war ).  We know, if it is sale able scrap, it gets scrapped or used for something.  So it was dumped in the middle of no where for some reason.  Humans don't expend energy doing nothing, unless it is politics or art work ( ha ).

The truck chassis is a left over from a former dis-assembly for parts.  It was stripped down for parts before it was dumped.  A fully loaded truck will fall off the end of a LST ramp differently than will a bare stripped down frame and axles.  A full loaded complete truck will flip over on its back when driven or pushed off a ramp of an LST.  Because of the center of gravity above the axle.  BUT a stripped chassis, with engine and transmission, will roll off the ramp and NOT back flip.  This was a stripped chassis when it was pushed off into the water.  It is setting upright with the engine setting up right, no carburetor, no radiator, no nothing but an engine and frame with axles and a wench on one end.

Thanks for the explanation Zobex. Makes sense. What do you guess is the marker definition of the truck.

As Mr Z has said it's a code marker. You might want to explore the land area where the truck is facing you might encounter other markers. Or maybe look for an anchor tunnel near the area. Just an advise..

Beats me, keep on looking in the area.  Someone went to a lot of trouble to dump it there and I know humans don't do some effort for no reason ( we are lazy ) .
