Adding more punch and staying power to the soldiers of the Emperor, the Type 97 Chi-Ha tank.
The Chi-Ha tank was one of the most heavily produced Japanese tanks used in World War 2 with over 2,000 units being made.
It was armed with a 57mm gun and would fight in an infantry support role. It would later have the 57mm gun replaced by a more potent 47mm gun a new turret. This tank would be called the Shinhoto Chi-Ha. Keep your eyes on our website as this version is also on it’s way!
These light tanks were used with dash and daring and surprised the British by appearing in areas where they did not believe tanks could be used, the wet jungle proving no obstacle to them.
