The Chi-He isn't in the same class as the M4 Sherman - the main problem was that the 47mm round couldn't penetrate the frontal armour of the Sherman. The next evolutionary version (the Chi-Nu) had a 75mm gun which had better armour penetration. US forces ran into the earlier Chi-Has in the Pacific Islands - these had thin armour and were slaughtered by M4s. The Chi-He was basically an upgraded late 1930s design so it really can't be compared to late war tanks.

Regards,

Charlie

Thanks guys, I had thought this was a Russian company! Found a site that was using
the Maly Modelarz name, thought it was legit, and go my ears pinned back but good, and with reason, for posting it here!
