First off the big guns roll in – the Type 91 105mm Howitzer:

The Japanese fielded several types of medium weight artillery of 105mm calibre, of which the Type 91 was typically assigned to field artillery regiments. It was a capable, modern and effective weapon of which many more than a thousand were produced.

In a defensive role it would often be dug in to permanent positions covering pre-ranged locations – ideal modelling potential!

The Type 1 47mm AT gun was developed following Japanese encounters with Russian armour and was the first indigenously developed dedicated anti-tank gun. It lacked the performance of other contemporary weapons of similar calibre, but was deemed sufficiently capable against lightly armoured tanks.

By the time it was introduced in 1942, it was already outdated. The same gun was used as the main armament of the Type 97 Chi-Ha Shinhoto tank. It was also used by Japanese paratroops – dropped disassembled in separate containers.
