CD-75 was a C Type class escort ship (Kaibōkan) of the Imperial Japanese Navy during the Second World War.


She was laid down by Nipponkai Zosensho K.K. at their Toyama shipyard on 5 April 1944, launched on 5 August 1944, and completed and commissioned on 21 April 1945. During the war CD-75 was mostly busy on escort duties.[1]

On 18 June 1945, in Toyama Bay, the submarine USS Bonefish (SS-223) was sunk by the combined efforts of the escort ships CD-75, Okinawa, CD-63, CD-158 and CD-207.[2]

On 10 August 1945, she departed from Wakkanai, Hokkaido, and soon after ran aground.[1] She was scuttled by her crew off Nō, Niigata.[1] Some sources indicate she may have struck a mine.[1] On 30 November 1945, she was struck from the Navy List.[1]
