A WWI hold over, the "tankette" was dated by the beginning of WW2. It often was used as an armored machine gun in support of infantry, and performed well against the disorganized forces of China; who's armored vehicles often consisted of trucks with metal plates welded on them. In some cases it also featured a 37mm cannon, which was grossly underpowered for any sort of tank combat. Very poorly armored it was reported that heavy infantry weapons such as the USA .50 caliber could penetrate it at ranges of up to 600 yards.

notice in that last shot the tank has wood planks mounted to the side, for added protection to shaped-charge attacks...

think there is a photo is our WW2 Gallery of a Russian tank with bed mattress springs mounted on the sides for the same reason Smile

I think that was their idea especially in China, and the Japanese infantry was not as developed and the air force.

And they had to worry about superior air power not as much as infantry.

The Japanese had a lot of copied guns like Nambu Type 14 wich resembles a German pistol and Type 99 resembles a Bren gun, used in Call of Duty games.

Yeah but i'm comparing a light tank vs the tankette. But i'm sure they were to support infantry vs infantry in china and against half tracks.
