Even the emperor is pleased with what the Chi-Ha Japanese tank 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.
