Developed by Mitsubishi from 1935 to 1937. The tank was mass-produced from 1938 through 1942, the last two years alongside an upgraded Shinhoto Chi-Ha, with a total of 2,880 vehicles of both types manufactured. The Chi-Ha and Shinhoto Chi-Ha tanks were widely used by Japanese forces in China, and after Japan capitulation these tanks were used by both PLA and Kuomintang forces in the Civil War of 1946.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent penetration and alpha damage with decent reload
  • Good gun depression
  • Good view range
  • Long range radio


Cons:


  • Large silhouette
  • Slow acceleration and poor maneuverability
  • Expensive research cost on equipment
  • Most equipment does not migrate to next tier
  • Crew easily killed


Performance

While designated a "light tank," the Chi-Ha comes off immediately as a tank uncomfortably wedged between being a scout, a combat tank or a tank destroyer, all roles that it can fulfill but will not excel at.
