Japan is one of the nations in Tankery and the most recent added. Their tanks mostly consist of excellent firepower, good speed, and fast turret traverse. However, most tanks suffer from their "cardboard" armor, similar to that of the French tech tree. There are currently 9 Japanese tanks in-game in various colors of green.

Low Tiers

Japanese low tiers in Tankery are mostly small light tanks with a few exceptions. Japanese low tier tanks give the player a rather small profile while giving out a good speed with an exception of the Chi-Nu. The downsides of most of these tanks come from their thin armor and a somewhat lacking in firepower.

Mid Tiers

Japanese mid-tiers in Tankery consists of tanks with good firepower and being fairly maneuverable. These allows the tanks to be capable of packing a good punch while still being fairly maneuverable. This does, however, come at the cost of mid-tier Japanese tanks usually lacking in good armor protection.

  • Due to Japan being a Naval Power, tank development was simply not of major importance.
  • Japanese tanks during WW2 were designated by their intended type. For example, the term Chi in Chi-Ha, Chi-Ni, and Chi-Nu means "Medium Tank" while the words after the designation determines what model it is.
  • The STB-1 is no longer available as of January 2018.
