The Japanese Type 95 Ha-Go tank was a light tank used by the Empire of Japan’s military in combat-operations during the Second World War. It proved sufficient in fighting against infantry but, like the American M3 Stuart light tank, was not designed to combat other tanks. Approximately 2,300 units were produced, making it the most numerous Japanese armoured fighting vehicle during the war. The Type 95 was a 7.4-ton vehicle with a complement of 3 crewmen: a commander, a hull machine gunner, and a driver. Only the commander was seated in the turret, hence he was responsible for observation, loading, aiming, firing the main gun, as well as decision-making and commanding the crew. The hand-operated turret was small and extremely cramped.
The primary armament of the most produced version was a Type 94 37 mm tank gun with a barrel length of 46.1 calibers. It elevated between −15 to +20 degrees. The tank carried two types of 37 mm ammunition, the high-explosive and armor-piercing. Secondary armament was originally two 6.5 mm Type 91 machine guns, but these were replaced with two 7.7 mm Type 97 light machine guns, one mounted in the hull front and the other in the back of the turret, facing to the rear right
