Tamiya - Japan Ground Self Defense Force Type 16 Maneuver Combat Vehicle

SKU: TAM32596


The New Kid in Town
Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) units began receiving the eight-wheel Type 16 Maneuver Combat Vehicle in 2017; it is expected to form a central part of the Rapid Deployment Regiments called for in a mobile Japanese defense policy. It certainly fits the bill, with a top speed of 100km/h thanks to a 570hp engine, and can utilize public highways as well as being airlifted. The distinctively modern turret is equipped with a domestically designed L/52 105mm rifled gun, capable of accurate fire on the move; it is anticipated that Type 16s will be able to both provide supporting fire and take on enemy armor.
