Description

Description

Arguably the best tank made by the Japanese during WWII up until 1945, the ShinHoTo was an upgrade to the original Chi-Ha tank. The term ShinHoTo means 'new turret' as this is effectively the biggest change from the original, mounting a high-velocity 47mm gun.

Debuting during the fighting on Corregidor Island in the Phillipines during 1942, the ShinHoTo Chi-Ha, with it's more deadly gun was more able to stand against the Allied tanks - something the original incarnation of the Chi-Ha struggled with on account of it's less powerful main gun.

These light tanks were used with dash and daring and surprised the British by appearing in areas where they did not believe tanks could be used, the wet jungle proving no obstacle to them.    

Resin and metal model, supplied unpainted and unassembled
