Japanese Type 10 and Type 90 Main Battle Tanks
Written by Gordon Arthur and Koji Miyake
The Type 90 Tank is a current main battle tank (MBT) of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (JGSDF). Developed during the depths of the Cold War, the 90TK was developed to counter T-64 and T-72 tanks from the Soviet Union.
The Type 10 Tank (10TK) is the newest MBT in the ranks of the JGSDF, entering service alongside the Type 90. This relatively new tank is smaller and weighs significantly less than the previous Japanese Type 90 main battle tank.
This Model Foto Focus takes a thorough look around both of these fascinating machines with many photographs showing the vehicles in great detail.
It also takes a look at the armoured recovery vehicles based on the two tank chassis.
