Tank Chats playlist https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBAEOsdxIbLPFEomzphaZQ0A5Vujkpjd8 The Type 95 Ha-Go tank was produced by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1935 and used throughout the Second World War.

The Tank Museum’s Type 95 was captured in Malaya and was examined in Calcutta before being sent to Britain. Surviving Japanese tanks from the Second World War are extremely rare.

  1. There were actually a few large tank attacks from type 95s in large groups. On Saipan there was a tank attack with 44 tanks and US shermans destroyed them. On Peleliu there was also a 17 tank counter attack, but Marine infantry, a dive bomber and four shermans destroyed them all in a matter of minutes.

  2. the french actually built a passenger car with a comparable bell.crank suspension system, the Citroen 2CV! at the suspension worked very well. the effect it has, as you hit an obstacle(hump) on the road, the front wheels get pushed up, which pushes down the rear wheels. this keeps the vehicle more or less level, and provides the rear wheels with more travel right when they are about to hit this obstacle too. you can easily get the same effect with air or hydropneumatic suspension, i believe the last Range Rovers have that.

  3. My former boss was a Marine Corps Raider. He loved to tell the story where he walked up to one ,during combat. The Japanese were buttoned up right inside. He and his squad only had light arms and some grenades so they could not take out the tank without a batch opening up. So Ray, my boss, threw a bunch of coral into the current track and jammed it up. He then walked back and started pressing the call button then kept circling the tank banging on it. The Japanese could not see him could not turn the current so they began to turn the tank on its tracks to get him. They couldn't , fed up the tank commander popped the hatch, with that a member of his squad jumped up and chucked in a couple gernades. Taking out the tank.

  4. Any tank is a terrifying beast when facing an enemy with zero anti-tank capability.
    The Australian forces discovered this
    at the Battle of Milne Bay when they were ordered to leave their Boys anti-tank rifles at their base before advancing to contact with the Japanese.

  5. The Type 95 gets a bad rap, mostly because it's primary battles after Malaysia were fought latter in the war against far more superior American and British tanks. In the early stages of the war, this little sucker was more than a match against just about anything the allies could throw at it.

  6. The Ha-Go Tank, also has two exhaust pipes at the back , left side and right side; the purpose of those two pipes was , that in case the tank would be without petrol, the crew could use it as a wheelbarrow …

  7. Since Asbestos is dangerous …
    Might I suggest… an Asbestos-substitute … or something that looks like it… and can just be a "display substitute" without being a dangerous thing to have around.
    The original asbestos insulation can be bagged, sealed, and displayed in another capacity outside the tank

  8. Not sure about the yellow camouflage on this tank. I’d read that the wiggly yellow stripes either bisected the tank from end to end, or side to side, or did both to form a ragged cross.

    Ok, just got to the part of the vid where he says the camouflage is spurious.

  9. Despite their legendary gusto, the Japanese were not actually very good at developing arms and warfare tactics. They were only good at fighting each other according to abstract rules of what 'good' meant.
