With over 2,100 units made, the Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tank was the second most produced Japanese medium tank of World War II, after the smaller Type 95 Ha-Go. It saw extensive action in the Second Sino Japanese War, the Battles of Khalkhin Gol against the Soviet Union, and throughout World War II.
It was Japan's standard medium tank - although with a weight of only 15 tones, excellent speed and mobility, and no more than 33mm of turret armour and 26mm on the hull, it would be considered a light tank in any other contemporary army.
Enough plastic components to make 1 Chi-Ha or the up gunned Type 97-Kai Shinhoto Chi-Ha
Full color waterslide decal sheet
A Bolt Action stat card
A detailed booklet describing how to build and paint your Chi-Ha
With 2 options in the plastic kit you're spoiled for choice, although we suspect many might opt for the up-gunned variant - the Type 97-Kia Shinhoto with the high velocity 47mm anti-tank gun in a new and larger turret from 1942.
Cost: 124pts (inexperienced), 155pts (Regular), 186pts (Veteran).
Weapons: one turret-mounted medium anti-tank, one turret-mounted rear facing MMG, and one forward facing hull-mounted MMG.
Damage value: 8+ (light tank).
This product is supplied unassembled and unpainted. Glue and paints not included.
Recreate World War II combat on a tabletop using dice, model troops, tanks and the rules constructed by Bolt Action against one or more opponents.
Each opposing side will also require painted model troops, representing the soldiers, guns and tanks of your chosen armies.
Tabletop encounters take place according to twelve closely defined battle scenarios that explain how forces are deployed and how victory is achieved.
All that remains is for players to pit their wits against each other as they enact just one small part of one of the greatest conflicts in history—World War II.
Build, paint and play! The construction and painting of the models and watching them come to life are just as much fun as the game itself!
