|Type 5 Ho-Ru|
The Type 5 "Ho-Ru" light tank destroyer, combination of a light tank and a 47mm anti-tank gun, compensates for its average firepower and range with good armor making it as resilient as a medium tank, a very good mobility and an affordable price.
Mass-produced and used in hit-and-run tactics, it can be a painful thorn on the enemy's side.
Strategies and TacticsEdit
- As the Ho-Ru costs but $10 to produce it can easily become almost a reinforcement unit, rushing to the enemy armor as they approach your headquarters.
- When in groups of 3+ they can cause serious damage on enemy armored columns.
- Unfortunately, the Ho-Ru is quite fragile; keeping air dominance is important if you wish to keep fighter-bombers away.
Pros & ConsEdit

+Effective a Ha-Go with a 47mm but also much thicker armor and higher speed.
