The Panhard of Cochinchina - Japanese Armored Car [premium]

Hi,

The basic Tech-Tree of Japan was just release & I think it could be a goodd idea to do this suggestion.

 

The unit was already presented in the topic of Mai_Waffentrager, but it couldn't hurt to do an official presentation of this specific & unknown unit !

 

--------------

The AMD Panhard 178 appeared in 1935 and become the main armored car of the french army. For the Coloniale, the high-command requested a modified version.

In August 1939, 8 models were ordered. The main difference is from the turret: the standard APX 3 is replaced by the smaller one-crew APX 5, but keep the same weaponery.

 

The four sent in the Far-East disappeared with the japanese invasion until... one day, in the last years of the war, a british photograph take of picture in Malaysia. It was a parking of armored fighting vehicle used by the japanese. An unusual vehicle is on the photo, definitly not from a japanese conception.

It is an evidence of the use by the Japanese Army of this rare unit. A unit which has all the caracteristics to be a good premium tiers 1.

Since this suggestion was made before the French trees. I don't think Op still wants it in the Japanese tree anymore xD
