The Type 97 medium tank was the main tank of the Imperial Japanese Army, commonly known as the "Chi-Ha".
Though it was unsuited for straight-up fights with newer tanks of the other great powers, it was produced in large numbers and used as the main tank of the IJA.
At the Battle of Shimushu, the 11th Tank Regiment fought bravely and sustained many casualties.
Though they cannot maneuver at sea without support, they can be loaded onto a 2nd class transport ship that has the ability to beach itself so they can perform amphibious landings.


Landing Forces Landing Forces behave similarly to other "Landing Equipment" against Installations. They:

  • Are only used against Installations.
  • Can only be equipped on "LST" type ships (a subcategory of LHA).
  • Provide great damage boost against all installation types.
  • Can be a component of a "nuke" setup.

Additionally, when attacking an installation, the attack animation makes the ship physically move across the screen like other Landing Equipment, as it is a "landing craft" itself.


Not to be confused with other "Landing Equipment/Tanks" (see here).
