JGSDF Type 90 Tank & Type 73 Light Truck Set
1/35 Military Miniature by Tamiya

JGSDF Classics
The Type 90 was offically adopted in 1990, a successor to the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF)'s Type 61 and Type 74 tanks. With a 120mm smoothbore gun and automatic loader plus a fire control system, as well as a 1,500hp V10 diesel, composite and hybrid suspension, it sported state-of-the-art technology. The Type 90 still serves the JGSDF in limited areas today.
The Type 73 light truck was deployed in all the arms of the Japanese Self Defense Force. It was based around a sturdy airliftable chassis, with power provided by a 2,659cc 80hp engine for solid performance on favorable and rough terrain. Deployment was phased out between 1996 and 2010.

This model kit set pairs the classic TAMIYA model of the Type 90 tank (from Item 35208) with Japanese model maker Fine Molds’ Type 73, in what promises to be a great value diorama in a box!

The Type 90 main battle tank reached units from 1991, with 341 examples manufactured by 2009. A 120mm smoothbore gun put it on the cutting edge at the time of its design. The Type 73 was adopted back in 1973 but served concurrently with the Type 90 until deployment ended around 2010. An 80hp engine and capacity for 6 passengers made it a highly versatile servant to the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF).
