Improved? Yes. Enough? No.

The evolution of armoured warfare during the Second World War saw tanks evolve from lightly armed and armoured scouts and infantry supports to become massively armed and armoured battlefield titans. This was the case for most combatants’ tanks, at least. However, Japan’s requirements and particular war situation didn’t result in this. Thus, even their “Kai” or “Modified/Improved” version of the quite light Type 97 tank wasn’t really up to Allied or German standards. Check out the old Fujimi 1/76 Shinoto Chi-Ha to see what I’m talking about. This nice little classic is, of course, on the Out of Box Page.
