WW2 Japanese Type 98 Shi-Ke Tractor and Field Gun
In the early years of 1937 the Japanese Imperial Army was extremely eager to mechanise its mostly man and horse-powered land army. This lead to the development of the Type 98 Shi-Ke. This artillery tractor was capable of travelling upto 38km/h and had a carrying capacity of 1.8 metric tons.
Despite its boxy appearance the tractor was both unarmed and featured not armour protection. Nonetheless it proved successful in its intended role of transporting artillery pieces like the Type 90/ 75mm field gun across the Chinese mainland and the Islands of the Pacific.
