You guessed it! It's day 3 of The Road To 0.6 press release. In todays update we will be showcasing two of the vehicles the Pacific Shores merger has created. What's Pacific Shores you ask? Pacific Shores was a Pacific Theatre only modification that merged with Forgotten Hope exactly one month ago (10/12/03). Todays briefing will include two new vehicles from the pacific theatre. First the Japanese N1K2-J Shinden-KAI (George) and secondly the Japanese Type 95 HA-GO (Light Tank). As you might of guessed both of these vehicles were created by the Japanese imperialist army for use during ww2. Take a look for yourself...

  INFO:  

The design engineering team of the Kawanishi Aircraft Co. Ltd. took one of the boldest initiatives ever by the Japanese aircraft industry in December 1941. To take full advantage of the Homareís projected horsepower output (N1k2-J engine), a four-bladed propeller with a diameter of nearly 11 feet was selected; this, plus the mid-fuselage location of the wings, forced the adoption of main landing-gear legs which had to contract as they retracted into the wheel wells. The Kyofuís combat flaps were also modified; whereas flap activation was manual on the Kyofu, the flaps were operated automatically on the N1K2-J aircraft. Although the landing gearís design gave problems from the outset, the prototype was ready just a little over seven months.

    Light Tank
  COUNTRY:  

    Japan
  INFO:  

The most numerous light tank in December 1941, and in fact throughout most of the war, was the Type 95 or "Ha-Go." The Ha-Go weighed seven and a half tons, and accommodated a crew of three. In the hull the driver and a machine gunner sat side-by-side (if the tank had a radio, which few Japanese vehicles did prior to the end of 1942, at least, the bow machine gunner was also the radio operator). The third man was in the turret, which had a 37mm gun mounted in the front, and the tank's second 7.7mm machinegun in its rear, in a ball mount (hence hand-aimed by the crewman in the turret). The Japanese "Tank Division" was to consist, ideally, of three tank regiments, a motorised infantry brigade (mainly in trucks) of 3,800 men, and a mixed artillery regiment.


That concludes todays press release, be sure to check back tomorrow for another update!
