Vintage Saturday: Motorized Type 38 Arisakas

Japanese soldiers in China in 1937 with Type 38 Arisaka rifles
This represents typical horsepower, armor, and crew space in a Japanese WWII armored vehicle (click to enlarge)

If they all fire in the same direction simultaneously, that cart will exceed the maximum speed of a Type 89 medium tank.

Okay, I’m exaggerating. A bit. (I know someone will chime in to defend Japanese armor, and they will probably be right)
