About the Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate:

The Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate was a single-seat fighter used by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Service in WWII. This plane was considered to be the best Japanese fighter to enter into large scale operations during WWII. The Ki-84 Hayate carried a lethal armament that included two 30 mm and two 20 mm cannons. Later models were bottlenecked by poor production quality, an extremely high-maintenance engine, and issues with landing gear and fuel quality. Towards the end of the war, many of the pilots were inexperienced and lacked proper training.

The Ki-84 Hayate saw its first operational active combat involvement during the Battle of Leyete, and the end of 1944. From then, it was used until the end of the Pacific war, often being deployed in the most intense situations. Three types of camouflage and markings exist – Type N, Type B, and Type S. These markings were sanctioned by the Japanese Ministry of Munitions.

About the Offworld APC – M313 Armored Personnel Carrier:

The Offworld APC – M313 Armored Personnel Carrier is a troop transport used by the United States Colonial Marine Corps.

Restock: M4A2 Sherman

2099-M4A2-Sherman-Promo-710

The M4A2 was a diesel powered variant of the famous M4 Sherman tank, used exclusively by the US Marines during World War II. Armed with a 75mm cannon, the Sherman was the ideal close-up fire support platform, as the Marines dug out entrenched defenders in their island-hopping campaign towards victory against Japan. The US Marines fitted their Sherman tanks with removable fording kits for the amphibious landings that each island assault would require. In this case we have fitted the M4A2 with the unique drum-style fording kits used in the US Marines’ 3rd Tank Battalion. Also included in the kit is a complete set of stickers based on tanks from the Iwo Jima and Tarawa campaigns, allowing you to customize the look of your kit.

Restock: Type 97 Shinhoto Chi-Ha – Japanese Medium Tank

2088-Action-Webcard-710

Type 97 Chi-Ha Shinhoto Background Information:

The Type 97 Chi-Ha was a medium tank used by the Imperial Japanese Army in World War II. As designed in 1936, the Type 97 was originally armed with a 57mm low-velocity gun designed for infantry support. In the aftermath of the Japanese defeat by the Soviet Union at Khalkhin Gol in 1939, a more powerful 47mm anti-tank gun was developed, copied from the successful Soviet 45mm design. This new gun was used in the “Shinhoto” (“new turret”) Chi-Ha and was produced from 1939-1941. The Type 97 was used with great success by the Japanese in their dramatic sweep of the western Pacific in 1941-42 and were particularly effective on the Malay and Philippines campaigns.

When the tides of war shifted, the Japanese were put on a defensive posture, and the remaining Type 97 tanks were dispersed across Japan’s vast island empire. The up gunned Shinhoto was proven to be effective against the American’s M3 Stuart light tank, but was largely ineffective against the M4 Sherman. With little room for maneuver on the island outposts in the Pacific, many Type 97s ended their days as static pill-boxes, buried up to their turrets with rock and soil. When the Japanese did mass their tanks for a counterattack, they were grossly outnumbered by their opposition in terms of tanks and firepower, and the results were an honorable but ineffective sacrifice for the emperor.

Additional information about this Brickmania custom Lego® kit:

The Type 97 Chi-Ha Shinhoto kit has the following features:

Restock: Type 92 70mm Battalion Gun

2019-Action-Webcard-710

The type 92 70mm Battalion Gun was a howitzer adapted by the Imperial Japanese Army in the year 2592 (1932 in the Western Calendar). It was intended to fulfill the role of a direct fire howitzer, but could also function as a mortar due to the extreme elevation capabilities of the gun’s barrel. the original version had wooden spoked wheels, but were later equipped with stamped sheet metal wheels. The Type 92 saw extensive action during the various campaigns on mainland Asia as well as in defense of the far-flung island defenses in the Pacific. Type 92s were originally issued two per infantry battalion, hence the designation of Battalion Gun.

Restock: M1A1 75mm Howitzer on M8 Carriage

2017-m1A1-75mm-Action-Webcard-710

Designed shortly after World War I to replace existing light artillery pieces, the M1 75mm “pack” howitzer was a small artillery piece that could be broken down and transported by pack horses or mules. Not mass produced until the outbreak of World War II, several design improvements were added in 1940, with the new gun designated the M1A1 on M8 Carriage (replacing the original wooden-wheeled gun carriage). The lightweight field gun was mainly used to equip US Army airborne artillery battalions, but was also adopted for use by the US Marine Corps for its campaigns in the Pacific. While not as powerful as the more widely used 105mm howitzers, its small size made it more versatile and easier to transport over rough terrain.
