Default Type 97 Chi-Ha

Type 97 Chi-Ha

The Type 97 was the standard medium tank in service with the Japanese at the start of World war 2. Although it was meant to replace the Type 89B in 1938 it was not available in sufficient numbers until 1943. Early on it was found that the 57mm gun was not adequate to counter contemporary armored vehicles and it was replaced by a high velocity 47mm gun in the later versions. There is a hull mounted machinegun and a machinegun mounted in the turret rear operated by the Commander. This chassis was also used as the basis for several combat and support vehicles.
