Even the emperor is pleased with what this box contains:

  • Enough plastic components to make 1 Chi-Ha or the up gunned Type 97-Kai Shinhoto Chi-Ha
  • Damage markers
  • Full colour waterslide decal sheet
  • A Bolt Action stat card
  • A detailed booklet describing how to build and paint your Chi-Ha


With over 2,100 units made, the Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tank was the second most produced Japanese medium tank of World War II, after the smaller Type 95 Ha-Go. It saw extensive action in the Second Sino Japanese War, the Battles of Khalkhin Gol against the Soviet Union, and throughout World War II.


It was Japan’s standard medium tank – although with a weight of only 15 tones, excellent speed and mobility, and no more than 33mm of turret armour and 26mm on the hull, it would be considered a light tank in any other contemporary army.

The Type 97-Kia Shinhoto Chi-Ha in Bolt Action

With 2 options in the plastic kit you’re spoiled for choice, although we suspect many might opt for the up-gunned variant – the Type 97-Kia Shinhoto with the high velocity 47mm anti-tank gun in a new and larger turret from 1942.

Cost: 124pts (inexperienced), 155pts (Regular), 186pts (Veteran).
Weapons: one turret-mounted medium anti-tank, one turret-mounted rear facing MMG, and one forward facing hull-mounted MMG.
Damage value: 8+ (light tank).
