Okay, just executeded my towewr... Literally.  As in stuffedd a P-38 in it's ass and pulled the trigger.     Yes, I shot my computer. Three times.. Fuck that dell POS..

Here's a little story in pictures. AB, going ok, I jump into a ground attack plane, AD-2 with Tiny Tims.          End result, dead mad wehraboo!

Best aircraft kill yet, brought to you by @RobotMinisterofTrueKorea   MiG-15 taken out with artillery strike.  

I like the Chi-Ha's design. A pity it was kept in service long past the time it became obsolete.


With industrial capacity in Japan being so scarce, most tanks pre-war were forced to continue service until the end. Many designs were made throughout the war to improve the situation but naturally none of them could be accepted with a Government staff that preferred the Navy's upgrades rather than the Army's proposals. Only until the Navy started to crumble did the Army get the resources to produce what they wanted, IE Chi-Nu and etc. But by that time they themselves were borderline competitive and too few to be used outside Japan.

The Chi-Nu appears to have been pretty acceptable for 1942, pretty equivalent to the M4


They would have sufficed against the M4 used in the Pacific. But they were only produced in a unit capacity of specifically 166. And in the end the US would have fielded enough recourses to easily remove the tank threat.


Only 280 tanks of new tech were committed by 1945.
