[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.

940000

The Type 4 Chi-To is a Japanese tier 6 medium tank.

Type 4 Chi-To medium tank was the first Japanese tank to be developed with an emphasis on anti-tank combat capabilities. Although the vehicle entered development prior to the Type 3 Chi-Nu medium tank, material shortages and war situation resulted in only 2 prototypes being completed before the end of the war.

The Type 4 Chi-To leads to the Type 5 Chi-Ri.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good overall mobility
  • Good gun depression (10° with the upgraded turret)
  • Accurate and superior firepower
  • Good amount of hit points
  • Decent DPM


Cons:


  • Noticeably bulky size, visibility leaves a lot to be desired
  • Thin armor, except turret front mantlet, mediocre gun depression with the stock turret.
  • One of the worst stock grinds next to VK 30.01 (P), prone to engine damage from front hits.
  • Well-sloped portions of front hull, side and rear armour are often overmatched and penetrated by HE shells.
  • Acceleration and top speed are both under par for a medium, although maneuverability is still ok.


Performance

  • The Type 4 Chi-To trades armor for gun depression and rate of fire, which allow this tank to excel in a support role and when executing flanking maneuvers. Slow acceleration, bulky size, and paper thin armor make this tank weak to HE rounds and getting caught out in the open. Be sure to maximize cover as much as possible, as well as attempting to hull down to make use of the 150mm gun mantlet armor and solid gun depression. Be aware that the stock turret only has 7 degrees of gun depression, but still gets the 150mm thick gun mantlet.
  • The Chi-To's good maneuverability and fairly high rate of fire (~3.4s) make it an excellent tank for flanking. It's possible to maneuver around the side of many heavier tanks and take 2 or even 3 shots before quickly retreating behind cover without taking any damage.
  • Stay on second line and follow a heavy tank, let it take the enemy fire and use your good RoF to do a lot of damage while enemies doesn't notice you're the true source of damage.


Early Research

  • Research the 400HP Mitsubishi AL Type 4 Kuurei V-12 first. Without it, the Chi-To is slow and cumbersome to handle.
  • Second, research the Type 5 Model 1 gun to improve reload time
  • Third, upgrade to the Chi-To Production Tracks.
  • Fourth, research the Type 4 Chi-To Production turret
  • Lastly, research the radio(s).
  • Go from there.

Historical Info

Development history

Japan expected that a new generation of tanks capable of tank engagements would be needed later in the war. In 1942, three medium tank classes were initiated. A 47mm cannon class, a 57mm cannon class, and a 75mm cannon class. These three classes were called Kou, Otsu, Hei respectively (something like A, B, C). It was soon considered that the 47mm cannon class medium would be obsolete before completion thus it was upgraded to a 57mm cannon class tank. The other 57mm cannon class medium merged with the 75mm cannon class tank. Thus these two, the 57mm cannon class tank and the 75mm cannon class tank, were respectively the Chi-To and the Chi-Ri tanks.


In the beginning plans were for a 20 ton tank with 50mm of armor with new features like an electrically driven turret. By February 1943, plans changed to 75mm armor, the 57mm cannon and top speed of 45kph.

For a bigger tank, a new engine started development by Mitsubishi and AL in 1943. The result was a air-cooled diesel 412 horsepower at 1800 rpm.

Multiple types of suspensions were examined such as the staggered road wheel layout from Germany (Chidori) and torsion bars. but the Japanese settled with what they were familiar with, the coil springs.

The 57mm cannon prototype was completed in March 1944. It completed testing and was officially named the Chi-To in May 1944.


In the very same month, the Chi-To received the requirement to mount a high velocity 75mm cannon. The cannon would come for the Chi-Ri tank program. The single tray loader would be removed and the cannon was named the “model 2″ and was used for the Chi-To. There were delays in getting the new cannon on which eventually happened in early February 1945. A new turret and hull was designed and planned to enter production beginning in August 1945 (the “production version”). Plans were written up to create 170 Chi-To tanks by the end on 1945


Design

The Type 4 Chi-To was a thirty-ton, all-welded medium tank with a maximum armor thickness of about 75 millimeters (3.0 in) on the frontal plates. The tank was 6.73 m (22.1 ft) long, 2.87 m (9 ft 5 in) high, and 2.87 m (9 ft 5 in) wide. The Type 4 had a crew of five men. The tracks were supported by seven road wheels. It was powered by a 300 kW (400 hp) engine, which was significantly more powerful than the 180 kW (240 hp) engine of the 19-ton Type 3 Chi-Nu tank. This gave it a top speed of 45 km/h (28 mph). The main armament consisted of a long-barreled Type 5 75 mm Tank Gun which was a variant of the Japanese Type 4 75 mm AA Gun. The gun was mounted in a large, hexagonal turret. A single 7.7 mm machine gun was mounted in the hull.
