Hello Warriors,

as promised here is the “Japanese Heavies Q&A” with Daigensui, these questions were picked from the comment section of a previous normal Q&A:

Is there a possibility to have a t8 prem for the IJA HT?
– Yes, although it will take a while.

For the Type 5 HT, is the gun originally from 14cm naval gun.
– Yes.

How much of the line is created by WG/you (due to lack of historical data) ?
– There was constant communication and cooperation. So say which part of the line was made by which is impossible to say, never mind needless.

Regarding high-tiered Japanese HT armaments.
Considering the cooperation between Rikugun and Kaigun was unlikely since the Rikugun and Kaigun were not on good terms at the start of the war , is it even possible for Rikugun to obtain 12,7 cm and 14 cm Naval Artillery to be mounted on their tanks and have ammunition supplied to them?
– If we suppose that IJA supplied the hull for use in coastal defense, then it is possible. After all, IJN did do their own modifications with Chi-Ha with 12 cm guns.
– 如果我们假设是IJA提供用于岸防的车身的话,你说的这些是有可能的。因为IJN的确是有自己弄的装120mm炮的九七中战。


Is the O-I 120 model correct? According to SoukouDragon’s article from 2013 there is no 4th turret (third miniturret) behind the main turret: http://ftr.wot-news.com/2013/11/19/superheavy-japanese-tanks/
– About as “correct” as possible. Plus, you have to realize that there are quite a few artist’s interpretations that are not based on actual blueprints or interviews with the engineers who worked on the projects.
O-I 120的模型是对的吗?根据SoukouDragon在2013年的文章,在主炮塔后面应该是没有第四个炮塔(第三个小炮塔的):链接

These tanks are obviously very large, do you think that they might be restricted gameplay and teamwork-wise because of their size? For example, on a map like Himmelsdorf, the new tanks could take up so much space, that they could be problematic for allies.
– About as problematic as T95.
– 跟T95一个德行

Will the new heavy tanks have any interchangeable modules with the current lines?
– Maybe, we’ll see how the TD line works out.
– 也许会有吧,要看TD线怎么整了

From what tank it will start the new heavy branch?(Chi-Ha, or Chi-He)?
 – Starts from Tier 1.
– 从1级开始啦

Modules (engines, radios, gun) from medium tree will be available for some tanks in the new heavy tree?
 – Radio should be interchangable.
– 电台应该是可以拿来用

How many crew members will the tier X have?
– Six, obviously.
– 明摆着,六个

What suspension types were investigated for the Japanese Heavy projects? Was it a beefed up version of the standard Hara bell cranks or something else entirely?

What role were the heavy tanks intended to fill in the Japanese order of battle/who wanted them? (ie type 95 ha go was a cavalry tank, Type 97 chi ha was infantry support, Type 91/95 heavy was for………)
– Armored bunker to dominate any and all land-based opposition.
– 装甲碉堡,用于搞定所有陆地上的敌人

How were the vehicles intended to be transported outside of combat?
– By its own power, likely. I doubt they thought that far ahead.
– 估计是自己开过去。我觉得他们根本就没想到这一点。

Were there any derivatives of the designs for other purposes ie SPG/Tank Destroyer ?
– No.
– 没有。

On the higher tier Japanese heavies most of the angling is actually terrible, lets be honest it’s quite flat. If you take a look at the STA-1, STB-1, Type 61 and so on they have well angled upper plates, so if they design tanks as insane as the heavies why did they forget about angling ? What happened ?
– First, you’re comparing postwar JGSDF to IJA. Second, it’s likely more an issue of whether angling would have been possible. With IJN sucking up all the welding experts, I would say that IJA didn’t have the necessary expert manpower to ensure that angling of such heavy plates would not fall apart under its own weight or from impact.
– 首先你这是在拿日本的自卫队跟IJA来比。其次要看倾斜装甲到底能不能做出来。因为IJN拿走了所有的焊接专家,我觉得IJA没有能够做到让这么重的装甲板由于自身重量原因或者是外力冲击之下不掉下来的技术专家
