The Type 10 is the Japan Ground Self Defense Force’s next generation main battle tank. Now, it joins its predecessors the Type 61, Type 74 and Type 90 in the Tamiya 1/35 Military Miniatures series. The Type 10 was first shown to the world in 2010 (that’s where the 10 in its name comes from), and was assigned to units starting in 2012. Among the many advances from the previous Type 90 model are a Japanese-made 120mm smoothbore main gun, and the so-called C4I system. This state-of-the-art computerized system allows the Type 10 to be connected to a computer network and share information with other tanks, enabling co-ordinated actions.
