Video: Type 97 Shinhoto Chi-Ha

We recently came across this short video from 2014 of a running Japanese Type 97 Shinhoto Chi-Ha medium tank.   Very little detail is given about this vehicle, which is most likely the only running example of this tank model in existence.  Shinhoto Chi-Ha tanks are relatively rare in any condition, let alone in running condition.  This footage comes from the “Engines of War” exhibition in Russia.   For a full list of existing Japanese WW2 medium tanks, click here.
