Thought some might be interested in these videos of a newly restored Japanese tank on it's first test here in Oregon.

For the first time I have seen "History" at close quarters,and I know that its actual process is very different from what is presented to Posterity. - WWI General Max Hoffman.

That thing needs a tune-up on its engine ASAP, it smokes like crazy.

Japanese tanks had diesel-engines, right? I wonder if its the original one, or a modern replacement.

The Japanese used both Diesel and Gasoline engines in their tanks. The Chi-Ha used a Diesel.
