The advent of Rift-technology, however, has allowed Japan to close the gap in some areas. Although increasing industrial capacity hasn’t been easy, the study of the Rift messages provided by Germany has allowed Japan to create a family of rapid firing compression weapons.
This box contains:
1 plastic, resin & metal Japanese Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tank suitable for Konflikt ‘47 Japanese Army
Full-colour waterslide decal sheet
A detailed construction leaflet
As Japan’s Rift-tech scientists developed the first of these cannons, the Chi-Ha chassis with the larger Shinhoto turret was used as a test bed for the earliest weapon trials, which in turn led to a compression cannon-armed variant entering service in late 1946. Equipped with either a 47mm anti-tank gun or the rapid firing light compression cannon the Type 97 Chi-Ha has proved capable of competing against heavier Allied tanks.
In China, it outclasses its rivals comfortably. Indeed, the success of the tank in the field has directly led to the development of the larger-turreted Type 3 Chi-Nu mounting a larger compression cannon.
