New Release: Kurogane Type 95 – Japanese Staff Car
About the Kurogane Type 95 Japanese Staff Car:
Developed as a reconnaissance vehicle for the Japanese Imperial Army shortly before the outbreak of World War II, the Type 95 was the world’s first massed produced 4×4 passenger car and served similarly to the Willys Jeep in that it was mainly used for transporting messages and personnel. The vehicle’s greatest asset proved to be the air-cooled engine that performed well in the climate of northern China and freed the Japanese from further reliance on unpolluted water, which was difficult to find in the region.
