Hungarian, Swedish tanks, IBG Models keep rolling out interesting kits of armor subjects we do not commonly see modeled. This time around, more Japanese armor is coming our way, the Type 94 tankette not one but four kits!
The Type 94 was a tankette used by the Imperial Japanese Army in the Second Sino-Japanese War, at Nomonhan against the Soviet Union, and in World War II. Although tankettes were often used as ammunition tractors, and general infantry support, they were designed for reconnaissance, and not for direct combat. It is estimated that more than 800 Type 94s were produced.

IBG Models beefs up its line of IJA tanks with four variants of the Type 94:

  • 72043 Type 94 Japanese Tankette
  • 72044 Type 94 Japanese Tankette (Late Production)
  • 72045 Type 94 Japanese Tankette with Trailer
  • 72046 Type 94 Japanese Tankette with 37mm Gun
In other related news, IBG Models has also released the box arts of the previously announced IJA Type 89 Tanks.

Background information on the vehicle was sourced from Wikipedia.

Not normally my area but these look interesting in a weird, retro way.
