    Default Japanese Tank Tree

    Am I the only one who is speculative about the upcoming Japanese Tank Tree? Historically speaking, Japan never used tanks as much, and for the ones they did use they were ripped to sheds. I'm betting most of the tank tree will be made up of prototypes. But what do you guys think?

    I'm sure they'll be capable vehicles with varying stuff going from something in the likes of T-26's early tier to even lendlease Tiger I's (premium?) with their medium line being lightly armored tanks somewhat on par with Pz.IV's.
    They'll have plenty of intresting vehicles however so i really hope armored cars is around the corner for all nations.

    Overall tree will be intresting - I'm sure that advanced tank drivers in realistic and sim will make great use of these tanks. And beginners and in arcade they will be overshadowed by stronger, more forgiving nations.


    Something that will be rather boring tho is the names of the vehicles as they are all fairly similar...
    Just their list of light tanks..
    Ha-Go. Ke-Ni. Ke-To. Ke-Nu. Ke-Ri. Ke-Ho.

    -_-;


    As for late tier stuff. I'm guessing its going to be another 'Japanese Sabre' story. M60's and Pattons all around! :U

    Icon1 Might suprise you to know...

    There has been a push to add Japanese Ground Forces for a long time, and a Japanese tank historian has documented every Japanese tank built and developed. With his help they worked out what the tech tree could look like, and its a surprisingly full roster.
    http://japangroundforces.weebly.com/

    Granted this is slightly dated now that Jap GF is already confirmed, but the tanks are all there.

    Besides rounding out all the nations in game with their own ground forces, Japanese GFs let us see what tanks Japan really did have and what they came close to having. British tanks are a perfect example of the fact that armor doesn't mean everything, especially when you have armor, firepower, and maneuverability advantage. From high tier to low tier, armor is very much irrelevant between vehicles of the same BR. More often then not, each vehicle at a given BR will have a round that can cut through the thickest part of another's armor, and even taking into account armor angling you will almost never be able to always have the perfect angle to bounce everyone's rounds. Perhaps a TD or higher BR tank puts a stock round right through your front, or you get flanked n spanked, armor angling doesn't help at those times. And even if you do find yourself at this perfect position where you can bounce everyone's rounds and you aren't flanked or facing higher BR tanks, all it takes is one strike from a plane to put you into your SPAA.

    There is also Type 61 variants (STA versions) and the Type 74 which can be seen as a Japanese Leopard. It's not a direct copy as it has much better armor than a Leo 1.
