The Type 61 really deserves to be split to multiple variants like the Type 74 was. The current one seems like a mix of Type 61 and Type 61 (B)

As far as i know there are about 3 official variants.
The initial production.
The night battle type.
And the upgraded vehicles with smoke tubes installed and repainted from OD green to two tone camouflage which also happen to be the one we have in the game.

Currently we have no B-type but there are two versions consisted of the early version with no smoke dischargers and late version with smoke dischargers installed.

We could have two more variants of the initial production type 61 and the type 61 (B).
But i don’t think the initial type 61 is necessary since it is just a worse type 61 and it won’t like be placed below it since the type 61 at 6.3 is already pretty low as it is.

For me i just want at least one more of mass-produced Type 61 variant especially the B-type and i will be happy.

A lesson learned from the Ukrainian war .

It seems to be used for hiding from drones, it can also be effective at catching suicide drones.

SDF Tank Crews Sometime During '80s.

Spoiler


And yes, that is an M3A1 ‘‘Grease gun’’ developed by the United States during World War 2.
It was officially adopted by the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force as 11.4mm submachine gun M3A1 and was used by tank crew members as Personal Defense Weapon (PDW), as well as anti-tank squads of infantry units equipped with the Type 60 SPRG and personnel from the anti-aircraft special forces.
Additionally, a small number of M3A1 guns were also used by the Maritime Self-Defense Force.
It was continued to be used even after the 9mm Minebea PM-9 was introduced as a replacement. The replacement was completed in 2011…

Happy New Year! How has everyone’s experience with the new Type 99 been? For me, it’s been really good, I was able to kill two Maus in two shots when I was stock. Hopefully Japan can receive more improvements and vehicles this coming year.

Nothing short of amazing, difficcult due to its massive turret and -2 degree gun depression, also incredibly sluggish stock but amazing.

Speed grinding in AB helps alot with aiming indicator, the results speak for itself.

Played on day one for about 5 games and got me five modifications and just almost unlocking the sixth mod.

9th Tank Battalion shooting competition, 74TK.

Definitely had a similar experience, even more so with the L15A2 round, which has 14.1 kg (!!) of explosives. I only play AB, so it’s good to see other people are using it effectively there too, and I’m glad you’ve been enjoying it.

It definitely was a great addition to end the last year with (included the F-15J).
Although i really enjoyed the Type 99 i still do not think that it is the most OP thing ever as some people overexaggerated it.
It’s not as competitive as medium tanks like Type 61 and ST-A 3 but it definitely make TD branch worth grinding through.

Additionally it added a backup vehicle for those that have the Type 75 MLRS so hopefully they will not ruin this lineup for no reason.
