Tiny Tank— Type 94 Tankette
October 12, 2013 in Armor
Large numbers of cheap armored vehicles worked fine against lightly armed opponents in the 1930’s, in this case against China. These little things were also to pull supply trailers with them, to help with the Long Chinese distances. Later, up against Stuarts and 75mm Halftracks, not so good. Couldn’t have been too great in the recon role either, as they were bereft of radio equipment. I guess the crews yelled real loud. Still, I thought it was kinda cute when I built it some years ago. Here it is scouting out my backyard, and a deserted Manila street, in 1941. Fine Mold’s 1/35 kit and modified FM figure.
