Japan’s Type 90 Main Battle Tank – New Japanese Self-Defense Forces Tank Video

type 90

The Japanese Type 90 tank rivals any other main battle tank on the modern battlefield. The Type 90 incorporates several newer technologies, some that are even lacking in other nation’s tanks. For example, the Japanese employed an auto-loading cannon, which reduces the crew requirement and also increases the tanks rate of fire. Likewise, the electro optic thermal sighting system has a passive viewing mode, which enables them to target the infrared signals emitted from enemy vehicles rather than the type 90 having to target the enemy on its own. The type 90 employs the Japanese Self-Defense Forces own version of armor incorporating layers of ceramic and steel. The type 90 is definitely a contender for the top spot of the greatest modern tank.

Watch this Type 90 tank video, the scene where the tanks hit the target simultaneously is designed to portray the digital communications ability of the JSDF.

I am a writer of “Hard Science” based SF. This 57 year old son old a Tank Commander of Koria (USMC) was Very impressed with Japan’s New “90”. 20 years ago when he was still here, I show him the Anime: “ROBO TECH” , Southern Cross. (Battle Mech that trans-configuation). ‘What do you think Father?”, I asked. “Wish many a time when the SHIT droped in the pot, My TANK could grow LEGS and GET OUT!” Are the Japanese one step closer to all Japanese Miltary Dream? BUILD A REAL “GUNDAM”! ( 60 ft PILOTED BATTLE MECK)
(we better keepa eye on them in the future)
