Type 97 Chi-Ha 12cmPz.Kpfw.VI Ausf E Tiger
By the end of 1944, the Japanese army needed a tank somewhat similar to Ho-I but armed with more powerful weaponry. That is why the decision was made to mount a 120mm naval gun on Chi-Ha Kai tank, replacing its standard 47mm gun. Several cylinders of the recoil mechanism have been mounted around the gun, which were protected by an armoured cowl cover. High-explosive shells contain 2.5 kgs of explosives and can destroy most enemies within its rank with a single hit.
During World War 2, General Hiroshi Oshima, the Japanese ambassador in Berlin, visited the Eastern front where he saw the infamous “Tiger” tank in person. In May 1943 Japan made an offer to buy blueprints and/or an example of the vehicle itself. After discussing terms and possible variants it was decided to purchase Pz.Kpfw.VI Ausf E chassis No. 250455. This tank was also equipped with a mantlet that had a reinforced binocular sight. The machine is armed with the powerful 88mm KwK 36 gun, able to penetrate most of the Tiger's targets with ease.

A combination of heavy half-track and 88 mm Flak cannon? Does that sound odd?Not if German engineering has anything to do with it! Let us introduce, the 8.8cm Flak 37 (Sf.) auf s. Zgkw. 18tThe Sd.Kfz.9 was the heaviest German half-tracked vehicle operated during the Second World War. Designed initially as heavy tractor for heavy artillery and as a recovery vehicle capable of towing tanks from critical situations. The first prototype was conceived in 1936.
