The Type 97 With More Powerful 47mm Gun
The Type 97 medium tank was an important presence for the Japanese army during WWII. It featured a low silhouette and was armed with a 57mm main gun. This late version featured a more powerful 47mm gun mounted in a larger turret, and an improved engine. It first saw action in May 1942 during the Battle of Corregidor in the Philippines and went on to serve as a mainstay for the Japanese army throughout the war.
