The Ha-go was the Japanese tank most commonly encountered by allied forces during the Second World War. It was used by the Japanese in China and through the course of the Pacific War. The Type 95 tank was used in combat against China and Russia, as well as fully participating in operations in WWII.
The Japanese Army developed the Type 95 Light Tank with an emphasis on speed and cross-country mobility.Type 95 Ha-Go was designed in 1933 and mass produced since 1935. It was originally built as light infantry support tank. Weighing just 7.4 tonnes, it was designed primarily as an infantry support weapon. Indeed, it was the most common light tank used by the IJA in the Pacific, with about 2,300 units manufactured. It had a crew of three and the main armament was a Type 94 37mm gun. Its maximum speed was 45km/h.
This is a fairly faithful reproduction of the Type 95 HA GO. The builder used a Modified M5 High Speed tractor as the main chassis and the power train consists of a 454 Chevy V8 Engine backed by a Turbo 400 Transmission, it has a Holley carburetor, electronic ignition and a top speed of 30 MPH.
