[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.

STA-2


VIII

annoSTA_2_3.png

7400

The STA-2 is a Japanese tier 8 premium medium tank.

One of the first Japanese post-war tanks was developed on the basis of U.S. vehicles, taking into consideration Japanese terrain, rail network specifications, and the smaller stature of Japanese tankers. This variant prototype featured a shortened suspension and a larger hull height. A total of two prototypes were built.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Good gun depression
  • Good rate of fire
  • Good AP penetration with 212
  • Acceptable mobility
  • Has one of the highest premium shell penetration of all Tier 8 premiums with whopping 275mm pen.


Cons:


  • Poor armor, ricochets are rare
  • Does not get preferential matchmaking
  • Abysmal shell velocity makes hitting anything thats moving difficult
  • Horrible credit earning potential


Performance

Gameplay of STA-2 is similar to Type 3 Chi-Nu. However, the STA-2 is a bit more mobile and the gun is much less reliable until 9.15. Acceleration is mediocre for a medium, so avoid brawling and beware of everything. The STA-2 can be considered fairly hard to play, hence it is not recommended for purchase for new players, especially considering it's low average credit earning ability. As of 9.15, due to its AP penetration buff, the STA-2 is at the point of being joe average.

Historical Info

After World War II, Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers ceased all military manufacturing and development plants in Japan, resulting in Japan losing the technology needed to build and manufacture tanks and armored vehicles. However, due to the Korean War, SCAP ordered Japan to re-militarize, forming armed forces and provided M4A3E8 Sherman and M24 Chaffee tanks.

The average height of a Japanese person at the time was too small for the M4A3E8, and drivers had difficulty reaching the clutch pedal with their foot. In addition, the M4 was becoming obsolete. The M24, though it was popular amongst the Japanese crews, was inadequate when facing Soviet T-34/85s, as seen in Korea. Thus, as the tanks in JGSDF service at the time were obsolete/inadequate, the JGSDF was provided with the option of either purchasing the new American built M46 Patton and later, the M47 Patton or develop their own MBT in 1954. Due to the high cost of purchasing American made tanks, and because the M47 did not meet their requirements, the JGSDF decided on developing their own main battle tank, resulting in the development of the STA-1, which became later the Type 61. In this way, the domestic tank development in Japan restarted after a blank of 10 years from 1945.

Four Prototyps were made in total

STA-1 is the first prototype built based on request specifications. Because they adopted rear engine front drive system, a shaft lies at a hull bottom. Some stature became high hereby. They designed turret ring lower than an engine deck in order to keep height. Therefore body length grows and had 7 wheels.

STA-2 was built with STA-1 by simultaneous progress. STA-2 body was shortened, and the upper hull was flattened. JGSDF executed a field examination with these 2 varieties of prototypes. They attached much importance to a mobility in deep mud, because a lot of paddy existed in Japan. They chose STA-2 which mobility ability was superior to.

STA-3 The semiautomatic loading system was produced experimentally for the shell loading, and AA machine gun on STA-3 is operated by remote control. However, because a real operation guarantee was unidentified and these devices exceeded a cost limit, it was omitted in next prototype STA-4.

STA-4 is prototype to be the nearest to the Type 61. The device of some examinations was omitted. But the engine was improved a little. The AA machine gun was enclosed by armour like a shellfish sealed. (But this machine gun system was abolished in manufacturing type.)
