So much M5A1 in tha back.

 

Also, some hilariously non-conformist poses hidden in the background.

-I'm led to believe the Chi-Ha is being used as a very subtle censor-bar.

You missed the much earlier brainstorming where we were figuring out just how many countries could get their very own Stuart tank. Answer? Damn near all of them. :teethhappy:

- SerB is not sure, whether the Chi-Ru project is not a post-war fake, but if it’s not, it’s possible it will appear in the game

 

Bugger, and we do have an actual good alternate Tier X medium candidate.

So wait, is the Chi-Ru fictional?

Yes, since it was a design made up for some "what if" contest.

I thought as much, as I remember it being brought up in this thread before.

Nah, they are M3A3. You can see the different below(hull shape):

I am not sure but some people say M3A3's engine is easier to maintain.

Medium tracked carrier which was produced a bit but uncertain if actually deployed.
It was used as the chassis for this thing:

BTW, next time ask in this thread. Easier to track for me.

 

I was aware of the SPG variants of the Type 4 Chi-so, but wasn't so sure of it as an independent vehicle.  In any case, I was thinking that the vehicle below (see link) was one, but had some reservations about making that conclusion.  It fits the setting at least of the photo.

The suspension really doesn't make sense. Too many roadwheels to fit any Japanese vehicles I know of.

It has seven (apparent) road wheels, three support rollers, and a similar idler wheel to the Type 4, while keeping a tracked carrier appearance.  However, there are still a few details that bother me, such as proportions and the style of the idler wheel (six holes as opposed to eight.)

To be honest everything about the STB-1 makes the grind worth it.
