The first tank developed in Japan after WWII. It was developed from 1954 through 1961 on the basis of the American M47 tank. The dimensions of the vehicle were decreased and the armor was reduced. As a result, the weight of the tank was lighter, and the tank complied with the requirements of the Japanese armed forces.

Pros and Cons

Pros:


  • Excellent tier X gun
  • Especially high shell velocity, since APCR is the regular ammo with the 105mm gun
  • One of the best DPMs among T9 mediums (2400)
  • Great gun depression
  • Decent mobility


Cons:


  • Virtually no armor, not even on the turret
  • Terrible camo (on par with the E-50)
  • Prone to engine damage
  • Gun elevation is lacking
  • Low ammunition load
