Re: The japanese armour and other vehicles thread

Hi.

Not really well yet but still alive....

Added the following on page 2:

13) Heavy Tanks:
Experimental Superheavy Tank O-I

There were some interesting archive finds in Japan about this quite mysterious vehicle and it seems the mystery is solved.

Re: 1415 - Vickers Light Amphibious Tank - Kokopo, PNG

Hi. Further research showed that the vehicle is not a Vickers Amphibious tank but the only prototype of the IJA SR III Light Amphibious Tank!!!

Re: 73 years ago today Pear Harbor was attacked

Hi.

The Invasion of Siam and Malaya also started on this day (to be exact 45 min earlier than Pearl Habor, the difference is just due to the dateline).

War never solves the real problems.

Hi. Seems to be one of the survivng vehicles of 11th Tank Regiment after the fightings on Shimushu Jima/Shumushu during the illegal post-war soviet invasion after the japanese surrender. The rear turret MG is missing and the armour jacket around the bow MG is not 100% correct. But a nearly perfect r...

Re: Gas masks

Hi. The italian army used Mustard Gas in Abessinia/Ethiopia and the japanese army in China. But none of them used poison gas against allied forces as SU, GB and USA had large stockpiles of these gases ready for action, too. There was just a limited use of frangible Hydrocyanic Acid hand grenades as ...
