Japan's Type 10 Tank: Features and Capability

The Type 10 tank is a fourth-generation domestic tank, the successor to the Ground Self Defense Force Type 90.
The Ministry of Defense's Technology & Research Division is in charge of its development, and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is responsible for its production.
The Type 10 tank has incredibly high firepower, defenses, and mobility, and is an overall well-rounded tank. The main gun is a domestic .44 caliber 120 mm smooth-bore cannon.
The shells are a new domestic armor-piercing round characterized by their high penetration. In the video, you can see footage of the Type 10 tank rampaging at the Nerima garrison.
From 3:50 in the video, you can also see how it was made at the venue and its hill-climbing ability.

The Type 10 tank is also equipped with an air conditioner for cooling the electronic equipment, but not the passengers.
As tanks generally run with the windows open, it doesn't make much sense to equip an air conditioner for passengers, and it seems that cooling suits are often used when it's hot.

The fuel consumption of the Type 10 tank is not disclosed as they are military secrets.
The purchase price is 950 million yen per tank, and seeing as they are weapons, cannot be purchased by civilians.
You can make high quality plastic models of Type 10 tanks, radio-controlled models and model cars as well. Why not give them a try?
