[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.

The Chi-Ni is a Japanese tier 2 medium tank.

Developed by Osaka Artillery Arsenal as a replacement for the Type 2589. The Chi-Ni and the Chi-Ha underwent combined trials in 1937. The Chi-Ha was deemed more successful. One prototype was manufactured.

The Chi-Ni leads to the Type 97 Chi-Ha.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent gun depression
  • Turret has small profile and decent protection when in hull down positions
  • Good damage with 5.7cm, good for taking out thin skinned armor like the Cruisers
  • Very sloped frontal armor can bounce some shots at range
  • Premium 5.7cm rounds are quite devastating with decent penetration


Cons:


  • Inaccurate guns
  • Mediocre mobility
  • Average to Below average overall armor
  • Poor Penetration on all guns


Performance

This is a solid support tank. While it is not the best at mobility, it can be sneaky with it's excellent gun depression over hills and ridges, where you should exploit this tank's strengths. The guns all have poor penetration and are quite inaccurate, but do fire fast. The 5.7cm gun is an excellent choice, as it's premium rounds have adequate penetration and even it's HE rounds can do a fair amount of damage to even the most armored of opponents. At 28mm of penetration, it is good at firing at flat, thin armor of the Cruiser tanks where it can devastate their vehicle.

This vehicle's armor is merely adequate. Frontal armor can bounce some low caliber shots at a long range and the upper plate is heavily sloped, however, it is only 10mm. Stay out of the line of fire, support your allies on the flanks.

Historical Info

History and development

In 1935 news had reached Japan of the United Kingdom's development of an advanced new tank, the A6 medium tank. A multi-turreted design that mounted a 47 mm tank gun and was capable of reaching speeds of 50 km/h. In comparison, Japan's tank force had not undergone any significant changes in tactics or organization in six years. The country's most widely fielded medium tank, the Type 89 I-Go, while popular with troops and tank crews had begun to show its age, attempts to update the design with the Type 89B I-Go Otsu were made in 1934, but no fundamentally new design had been undertaken since. Until this point it was felt that there was no need for a new medium tank design. In comparison of the two tanks, the A6 was seen as having superior offensive and defence capabilities than its closest Japanese equivalent. The appearance of Britain's new tank design, along with reports from Manchuria of the Type 89 I-Go's inability to keep up with other motorized vehicles with its paltry 25 km/h top speed brought about plans for a replacement.

Tank designers recommended research on a new tank design, a medium tank capable of going 35 km/h and weighing 15 tons with offensive and defensive abilities greater than the Type 89 I-Go. The Chief-of-Staff Operations was not enthusiastic for the project as it was peace-time and the military had a limited budget to spend. The army thus issued peace time requirements for a new tank design. Rather than focusing on performance improvements, the Chief-of-Staff Operations made only a lighter weight the sole requirement in order to lower production costs. The finalised requirements were for a lightweight tank that was also capable of going 35 km/h. These requirement also led to the development of the Type 95 Ha-Go light tank. The Engineering Department believed that it was highly regrettable that their efforts would be devoted solely to weight reduction, so instead, two concurrent projects were built. The first plan was for a lower-weight, low-cost medium tank that was to be made by the Osaka Army Arsenal, which would become the Chi-Ni. The second plan was contracted to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries for a higher performance medium tank design which would become the Chi-Ha.

The following are consensus errors or inconsistencies which have been identified with the configuration of the vehicle in question and conflict with information available on the public record. The causes for these divergences in the game are normally not disclosed and may be rooted in game balance.

* The sole Chi-Ni was only ever fitted with the 57mm tank gun.
