The Imperial Japanese Army IJA.Dai-Nippon Teikoku Rikugun; "Army of the Greater Japanese Empire" was the official ground-based armed force of the Empire of Japan from 1868 to 1945. It was controlled by the Imperial Japanese Army General Staff Office and the Ministry of War, both of which were nominally subordinate to the Emperor of Japan as supreme commander of the army and the navy. Later an Inspectorate General of Aviation became the third agency with oversight of the army. During wartime or national emergencies, the nominal command functions of the emperor would be centralized in an Imperial General Headquarter (IGHQ), an ad-hoc body consisting of the chief and vice chief of the Army General Staff, the Minister of War, the chief and vice chief of the Naval General Staff, the Inspector General of Aviation, and the Inspector General of Military Training. In 1941, the Imperial Japanese Army had 51 divisions.
And various special-purpose artillery, cavalry, anti-aircraft, and armored units with a total of 1,700,000 men. At the beginning of the Second World War, most of the Japanese Army (27 divisions) was stationed in China. A further 13 divisions defended the Mongolian border, due to concerns about a possible attack by the Soviet Union. From 1942, soldiers were sent to Hong Kong (23rd Army), the Philippines (14th Army), Thailand (15th Army), Burma (15th Army), Dutch East Indies (16th Army), and Malaya (25th Army).
By 1945, there were 5.5 million men in the Imperial Japanese Army. The lack of supplies caused large numbers of fighter aircraft to become unserviceable due to the absence of spare parts. This lack of supplies also resulted in "as many as two-thirds of Japan's total military deaths to be the result of illness or starvation". Imperial Japanese Army Type 95'Ha-Go Light Tank. Used by the Imperial Japanese Army.
During the Second Sino-Japanese War. At Nomonhan against the Soviet Union, and in World War II. It proved sufficient against infantry but, like the American M3 Stuart light tank. Was not designed to face other tanks in combat. The Type 95 was a 7.4-ton vehicle with a complement of 3 crewmen: a commander, a hull machine gunner, and a driver.
Only the commander was seated in the turret, thus he was responsible for observation, loading, aiming, firing the main gun, as well as decision-making and commanding the crew. The hand-operated turret was small and extremely cramped.
The primary armament of the most produced version was a Type 94 37mm tank gun not to be confused with a barrel length of 46.1 inches, and could be elevated between 15 to +20 degrees. The tank carried two types of 37mm ammunition, the high-explosive and armor-piercing rounds. For the latter, muzzle velocity was 580 m/s (1,900 ft/s) and armor penetration was 36 mm (1.4 in) at a distance of 275 m (902 ft).
As the tide of the war turned against Japan, the Type 95s were increasingly expended in Banzai charges. Or were dug-in as pillboxes in static defense positions in the Japanese-occupied islands. During the Battle of Tarawa. Seven entrenched Type 95s of the 7th Sasebo SNLF opposed the American landings.Those seven, along with the two on nearby Makin Island. During World War II approximately 2,300 Type 95'Ha-Go light tanks were produced. Making it the most numerous Japanese armoured fighting vehicle of the Second World War.
