Anti-Aircraft Tank "Ta-Se"


Twin AA Gun Tank

The development of the AA tank by the IJA started in 1941. A trial vehicle of "Ta-Se" was made in Nov. 1941. It utilized the chassis of Type 98 Light Tank and mounted a 20mm AA gun converted from Type 98 20mm AA Machine Cannon. Ta-Se was, however, not produced, because the chassis is small and bad for the stability and the operation of the AA gun.

Twin 20mm AA gun tank was also experimented. Its gun was converted from Type 2 20mm AA Machine Cannon. This AA tank was also not produced.
