Type 97 20mm A/T rifle...rifle is a stretch of the imagination. This is more like a man draggable A/T gun, weighed about 150lbs with shield. http://mailer.fsu.edu/~akirk/tanks/japan/antitankgun.jpg

Go to here and scroll down to Japan's flag on left and click on armored car. It ownt let you link pictures. http://mailer.fsu.edu/~akirk/tanks/

ah ok I found it. What threw me was that its not really a armored car but was more of wierd hybrid railroad vehicles-"Model 91 Broad-gauge railroad tractor." ( though in some pics it looks like they drove it off rail) The trick to link from that is to do "open in new window" rather then just clicking, as it does not update the explore address. Iv encounteres this onsome other sits too. Japanese armored cars: http://mailer.fsu.edu/~akirk/tanks/japan/Japan-AC.html and a pic http://mailer.fsu.edu/~akirk/tanks/japan/type91-broadguageRRtractor.jpg think I would go for the type 92 ac first though (army or navy ones): http://mailer.fsu.edu/~akirk/tanks/japan/model-92.jpg Yes that 20mm would be good to have, but I think it woudl definately would have to be a deployabel gun as it rl it was supposed to have 4 man crew. One guy coudl fire it, but I don't think they used automatic fire very often. I suppose though they could try and dig the back or fornt pedestal in to the groun to absorb more of the recoil. There is some cool battles the 89 could go into, particuallary Khalkin Gol (japanese call it Nomonhan). it and the other fighing there would be a great opportunity for the more obscure early war jap and russian stuff. (truly a "forgotten" war.. heh) general info on that battle and theater. http://www.buzzle.com/editorials/12-19-2002-32527.asp aircraft of k gol battle http://www.j-aircraft.com/research/George_Mellinger/sovietorderofbattle.htm http://orbat.com/site/history/historical/russia/khalkin-gol1939.html plus the japanese soldier could get these kick as big furry ball hats: http://www.worldwar2database.com/cgi-bin/slideviewer.cgi?list=nomonhan.slides oh yea!

I could live without a Chi-Nu, though the other stuff sounds all right, especially the Type 97 ATR and Ho-Ni...

Looks like a couple of those late war tanks could give a Sherman a run for it's money.
