Type 5 Na-To

Primary RoleTank Destroyer


ww2dbaseThe Type 5 Na-To tank destroyer design began as a potential weapon to counter the heavily-armored American tanks. The design was completed in 1945, and an order for 200 examples was placed. The design made use of the chassis of the Type 4 Chi-So medium tracked carriers, and primary weapon was to be either the Type 5 75-millimeter anti-aircraft gun or the Type 4 75-millimeter tank gun. Lack of raw materials hindered production, thus when the Pacific War ended, only two units were built, and none of them saw action.
