Talking about that; I’ve created a suggestion for it and multiple other nice things, here is the list

Here is a Type 94 truck, similar to the one in-game, except armed with a Type 2 autocannon instead of a Type 98. Due to the higher fire rate and accuracy of the Type 2, I feel that this vehicle would be a good foldered upgrade under the current Type 94 AA, as the Flakpanzer 38 is to the Flakpanzer I in the German tree.

I believe the So-Ki should have the Type 2 as well

Indeed, I enjoy the So-Ki currently but it’s a tad bit dissapointing to me that it doesn’t get its historical armament.

wait , what historical armaments? Is it missing an ammo type or something?

As Noveos said above, the So-Ki actually used twin Type 2 cannons instead of the Type 98s it has in-game. If I remember correctly, the name of the tank is actually just derived from the twin cannon mount which was called the Experimental 20 mm anti-aircraft autocannon So-Ki I.

…There can’t just be good things happening to the JP tree in War Thunder without a monkey’s paw curling…

Is the A6M5 Ko to go to 5.7 as a result now, or R2Y2 to 8.3? :P

What kind of nonsense is that. Spall liners are found on literally every modern MBT, by modern I mean 1970+. It’s not even an add-on thing, this is what is expected for a modern MBT to come with as default. Is it called a liner, or is it integrated somehow else, but all modern MBTs have means to reduce spalling. There isn’t a single MBT in service that does not have that and it isn’t necessarily mentioned anywhere because as said, it is expected, a default, just like electric car windows aren’t mentioned on any pamphlets or technical specs anymore, because they are considered default in 2024, while in the '80 & '90 they were heavily advertised if they came with that feature, because they were not standard at that time for many cars.

Got a source for that image boss? I tried having a look, reverse image searching but couldn’t find it. I’d like to read on it further :)

No idea, one of my followers on Twitter posted it on my tweet, he doesn’t say where it is from.

I found the document those screenshots were from, a US report on non-US-made projectiles. Unfortunately it seems that the document only provides quick overviews with diagrams and/or pictures while providing no sources. I’ll be going back to read through the entire document when I have the time just in case I missed anything. It listed a few more 35mm shell types including a rather interesting SAPHEI-T shell.
