?* Frontal armour is 30 mm thick, good enough to stop some fire.+
?* The tank is quite nimble despite the 23 km/h speed limit.+
?* The gun dishes out some serious damage per shot.+
?* Thickest armor of all the Tier 1 tanks (with the exception of the Soviet [[Tank:T62A_sport|T-62A Sport]] which can only be used in Soccer mode).+
?* Amazing gun depression +

?* Low top speed makes it harder to respond to changes in the battlefield quickly.+
?* The top 37 mm gun has poor rate of fire and penetration, even by tier one standards.+
?* Poor turret traverse speed.+
?* The large driver's hatch at the front of the tank can be easily penetrated, due to the armor in that area being neither thick nor angled enough to bounce most shots. +

?The Renault Otsu is the Japanese version of the Renault FT French light tank. As such, the Otsu shares the Renault FT series' sluggish top speed. This makes the Otsu slower to react to changing battlefield conditions. However, it is surprisingly nimble and easy to turn, owing to its 36 degree traverse speed fully upgraded. +
? +
?The tank also boasts quite a lot of armour for a tier 1 tank, with 30 mm of armour at the front. This allows you to bounce quite a number of enemy tank's guns. Do not fool yourself into thinking that the Otsu can bounce everything, as even at tier 1 there are guns that can penetrate your armour.+
? +
?The top gun on the Otsu is quite inaccurate, even by tier 1 standards. It boasts quite heavy damage to compensate, but is marred by its slow rate of fire of 17 rounds per minute, beaten only by the Medium Mk. I's QF 6-pdr gun. It also has the lowest penetrating elite gun of any of the tier one tanks.+
? +
?Overall, the Renault Otsu is designed for close-range combat. The Otsu's penetration is suitable for close-range engagements, where the 0.5 /100 m accuracy does not matter much. Use the terrain for cover while you reload, and punish enemy tanks that try to take you out. +

?Please note the [[Battle_Mechanics#Map_Restrictions|Map Restrictions]] for tier 1 tanks and the Camo Type for those maps when purchasing a camouflage skin/paint job for this tank. +

?|History= Louis Renault had obtained an order in 1923 to build two new prototypes as a parallel modification project, with the factory designation '''Renault NC'''; it was intended to feature not only an improved suspension system but also a stronger engine. Like "FT", "NC" is a combination of code letters devoid of any meaning. One prototype happened to be finished second, in December 1925, and was therefore called the '''NC2'''. It was fitted with a modified Kégresse leaf spring suspension and a 62 hp engine. It had as an alternative designation ''Renault Modèle 24/25'', because Renault proposed to build it as a possible "fast tank" as specified in Plan 1924 of the French Cavalry. This line of development was discontinued however. The first prototype to be ready, thus named the '''NC1''', had a different suspension system, with twelve wheels and three large vertical volute springs per side. It allowed for a top speed of 18.5 km/h, making it in 1926 the fastest French tank ever developed. +

?Renault also tried to open foreign markets. In 1929 he obtained an order of ten vehicles for Japan, there called the Renault Otsu-Gata ("Type B"), fitted with 25 mm side armour, bringing the weight from 7.5 to 9.5 metric tons. All of these vehicles were described by postwar writers under the name '''NC27''', but this was not a contemporary designation.+
