[Client Values; Actual values in
Specifically, the mismatch in crew values caused by commander's 10% crew skill bonus. Outside of a crew of 1 commander only, 100% crew is a fiction. The client values, given for 100% crew, will normally be taken into battle with 110% crew skill members aside from specific functions, causing their actual performance to deviate from the expected client value. These differences are taken into account in tooltip boxes.

136000

The Type 1 Chi-He is a Japanese tier 4 medium tank.

The Type 1 Chi-He medium tank was a further development of the Type 97 Chi-Ha. It was developed in 1941, but due to the lack of steel, production did not start until 1943. A total of 170 tanks were manufactured. Most of them were held for the defense of Japan and never saw combat.

The Type 1 Chi-He leads to the Type 3 Chi-Nu.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Hull and Turret armor thicknesses have been virtually doubled at the front compared to the Chi-Ha
  • Plays similarly to the now-familiar Chi-Ha - Second-line sniper
  • Can equip much more powerful weaponry than the Chi-Ha
  • Fantastic gun depression
  • Good camo value


Cons:


  • Plays similarly to the old Chi-Ha - not a frontline fighter in any way
  • Despite the improved armor, it still does not help much against higher tier guns
  • Low penetration on all guns makes it difficult to penetrate a number of tier V and IV enemies.
  • Struggles over hills with stock engine
  • Does not improve much in visual range over the Chi-Ha


Performance

This tank, while not the fastest, can get to advantageous positions quite quickly, especially once the tank has been upgraded with the top tracks and engine. Its main feature is its 15° of gun depression, which can be used to take a shot over a hill and quickly retreat. Due to rather underperforming armor, minimizing exposure is advised.

The grind can be quite difficult, but if second-line support is your playstyle, this tank is incredible once upgraded! The Chi-He is also unbearably sluggish when stock, but you will quickly wonder if your driving a new tank once you get the top tracks and engine.

When it comes to the two top guns, the stats above are incorrect... the 57mm has (compared to the 75mm) better:

  • Max Aim (smallest the circle will get)
  • Rate of fire (almost twice than the 75mm)
  • Penetration (except for HE... by the way, use mostly AP on this tank. You will do little with the rather bad HE)
  • Damage

The only place where the 75mm is better than the 57mm is when using HE, since the 75mm (being a bigger gun) can actually do something with it's tiny HE dmg. However, since this is a sniping tank, not a brawler, this is usually ill-advised and only useful against enemy light tanks.

Overall, the Type 1 Chi-He is a difficult tank to play right and seemingly an easy kill when stock... but an amazingly deadly second line sniper capable of dominating matches when played skillfully.

Historical Info

The Type 1 medium tank Chi-He (一式中戦車 チへ Ichi-shiki chusensha Chihe) was an improved version of the Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tanks of the Imperial Japanese Army in World War II. It had a more powerful main gun, engine and thicker armor. It was the first Japanese tank to have a communication radio as standard equipment. Production of the tank did not begin until 1943, due to the higher priority of steel allocated to the Imperial Navy for warship construction. A total of 170 units were built. All of the tanks produced were allocated for the defense of the Japanese home islands, against the anticipated Allied Invasion.

History and development

After 1941, the Imperial Japanese Army quickly realized that its 1930s designed medium tank, the Type 97 Chi-Ha, was inferior to the 1940s generation of Allied armor, such as the M4 Sherman. Since the Type 97’s low-velocity 57 mm main gun was designed for infantry support in 1938, it could not penetrate the 1940s generation of Allied armor, whereas its own thin armor made the Type 97 vulnerable to most adversaries equipped with anti-armor capabilities. In response, a new series of tanks based on an improved Type 97 design was conceived. The first of this new series was the Type 1 Chi-He. Work on the design began in 1941. However, production did not begin until 1943, due to the higher priority of steel allocated to the Imperial Navy for warship construction. A total of 170 units were built from 1943–44, and they did not see any combat.


Compared to the Type 97, the Type 1 Chi-He was slightly longer and taller. Its angled, thicker frontal armor was welded, as opposed to riveted. The adding of the frontal armor and a fifth crewman increased the weight, but the "streamlining" of the hull reduced the increase to only 1.5 tons. The Mitsubishi Type 100 diesel engine at 240 hp provided 70 hp more power than the Mitsubishi Type 97 diesel engine, and was thus more than able to compensate for the additional weight in armor.

The Type 1 Chi-He's 47 mm high-velocity gun had a barrel length of 2.250 m, a muzzle velocity of 810 m/s (2,700 ft/s), and a penetration capability of 55 mm/100 m, 40 mm/500, 30 mm/1,000 meters; over double that of the Type 97s low-velocity main gun. It was more reliable and more accurate, but did require the installation of elevation gear (on the earlier Type 97 the gunner had to physically move the gun up or down on his shoulder). In light of these improvements, the gun was adequate against Allied armor. The ammunition was the same as used with the anti-tank version of the gun. The tanks carried 120 rounds of ammunition with both armor-piercing and armor-piecing high explosive shells. The gun was placed in a three-man turret, which had space for the commander, gun-layer and loader. The gun could be elevated and depressed between +20 and -15 degrees. This gun was used in the Type 97-Kai Shinhoto Chi-Ha tank, and on the Type 3 Ka-Chi Amphibious Tank.

The Type 1 Chi-He was also the first Japanese tank to carry a radio as standard equipment in each tank, eliminating the need to use signal flags.

Combat record

All of the Type 1s were allocated to the Japanese home islands to defend against the projected Allied Invasion. Despite the Type 1's superiority in terms of armor and firepower over the earlier Type 97, it still underperformed against the American M4 Sherman, leading to a new design known as the Type 3 Chi-Nu.

After the end of World War II, Type 1 Chi-He tanks captured by the Soviet Red Army were turned over to the Communists Chinese army for use in the Chinese Civil War. After victory, the People's Liberation Army continued to use them in their inventory.

Variants

  • Type 1 Ta-Ha Self-propelled Anti-Aircraft Gun

A prototype version with twin Japanese-built 37 mm Flak 18 anti-aircraft guns fitted in place of the 47 mm gun was built, but did not go into production.

  • Type 2 Ho-I
An infantry support tank that shared the same hull as the Chi-He, this tank is represented in World of Tanks with the Chi-He's upgraded turret. This tank primarily used the 7.5cm Type 99 Tank Gun, although it was also tested with the Experimental 57 mm Tank Gun Shin. A total of 30 units were made, with none having seen combat and all being destroyed post-war.
