In the early 1960s, Mitsubishi started development of a new tank that complied with government requirements for armament and defense. The first two prototypes of the STB-1 were manufactured in September 1969 for trials. In 1970 the prototypes were shown to journalists and participated in a military parade.

Player Opinion

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Fastest reload on a 105mm cannon
  • Great gun depression
  • Tough turret
  • Reasonably mobile
  • Good camouflage values and view range


Cons:


  • One of the worst overall dispersion values in its class and poor aim time for a medium at this tier
  • Gun mantlet gets weak towards the center
  • Poor overall hull armor, relies more on slope than thickness.
  • Receives frequent module damage due to crammed space and poor armor
  • Poor gun elevation


Performance

The STB-1 is similar to the previous tanks in the line, with the exception that it now has much better turret armor than the tanks before it. It can reliably hull down unlike its predecessors due to a much needed increase in turret armor. While no longer having the highest DPM on a tier 10 medium, it still has the fast reload and the 390 alpha damage of the L7, the STB-1 is a very serious threat when hull down as it can very quickly outgun almost anything that isn't an autoloader. The tank itself is very small and as a result has a good camouflage factor and is also relatively mobile. While its camouflage and mobility are not on the levels of a soviet medium such as the T-62A, they are still above average for their class. However to set it apart from soviet mediums, it has 10m more view range.
