...should not be a big topic of discussion for Pacific Fighters. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

With their very light armor protection, even the Japanese medium tanks will be torn up like tin cans.

In the PTO the Sherman becomes the "Tiger". http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yup, the Japanese had in their arsenal the only WWII tank to my knowledge that could be stopped with a bayonet.

This could only be accomplished by Marines weighing over 200 pounds. Skinny Marines were forced to rely on bazookas and 37mm AT guns.

Well I didn't mean puncturing the armor. I beleive it was the Type 97 where you could jam a bayonet below the turret and jam the turret mechanism, making the tank much less dangerous.

Ooopphhh, rough assignment!

"I'll wait here while you go jam your bayonet under that tank turret."

I had not heard that one Luthier, good info. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


This would be similar to the Japanese AT method of a guy with a mine on a stick which he hits against the tank to detonate. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Nah, had to shove the mine under the tank, could only penetrate 20mm of armor. If we are talking about the magnetic at mine that Japan had. Still shoving a bayonet into the turret of a 97? Could be scary cause it had two Mgun ports..would have to attack from the flank.

A bayonet? Stopping a Japanese tank?

Did the Japanese just hate the concept of armor protection in general? They sure didn't give it to their pilots...

Armament: 1 - 47mm gun 48 caliber H.V.
1 - 7.7mm MG
Engine: Mitsubishi,V-12 air cooled, 170 hp
Speed: 24 mph
Range: 130 miles
Crew: 4
Weight: 16 tons

Flimsy, small, poorly used. Served against allied forces
in Pacific and against Soviets in 1945 war in Manchuria.
This was the best of the Japanese tanks.

Man. This little POS going up against T-34's in 1945? That musta been a slaughter!

"Most P-39's were sent to the Russians - so I guess that was an American secret weapon against our Russian allies."

Not really, most Shinhoto Chi-has, well, infact Japanese tanks were too far south to take place against the August offensive. They did defend the Kuril Island Shimushu. It was the last Japanese tank action (actually took place after the cease fire..Stalin was just greedy and basically invading Japan after the truce, in Japan's eyes at least) Supposedly 30 tanks rushed the beach of the landing..the Russians were getting creamed but were firing back with at-guns..a fog came in which was hinderance for the tanks..when it was over, twenty one tanks were knocked out..over a hundred soviets were dead.

As for that particular tank..the Shinhoto Chi-ha (Improved Chi-ha)..it had some success against the M4, where it had room to flank and ambush the M4s they would get in some kills.
