Armaments

Main armament

Give the reader information about the characteristics of the main gun. Assess its effectiveness in a battle based on the reloading speed, ballistics and the power of shells. Do not forget about the flexibility of the fire, that is how quickly the cannon can be aimed at the target, open fire on it and aim at another enemy. Add a link to the main article on the gun: {{main|Name of the weapon}}. Describe in general terms the ammunition available for the main gun. Give advice on how to use them and how to fill the ammunition storage.

Notes:

  • Shells are modeled individually and disappear from the rack after having been shot or loaded.
  • To go into battle with the flanks empty of ammo, pack 40 (+11) shells or fewer.

Usage in battles

The Ho-Ri can be used in multiple roles. Its most effective at medium range, where it's harder for the enemy to aim for the lower plate and shells have a harder time penetrating the mantlet, making it easy for you to destroy them. Another option, although risky is to sit on a road that players like to go down and use your armor to bounce and take shot and return fire on enemy tanks.

Enemies worth noting:

  • IS-2 / IS-2 (1944) / ISU-122: These machines carry a huge 122 mm cannon that penetrates literally anything they see, including the Ho-Ri. Their shells will go through Ho-Ri's vertical armor of the fighting compartment pretty easily, killing the crew inside or detonating the ammo. To deal with the IS-2, try get a shot at them before the notice you / when they are reloading. These tanks tend to get one-shot due to their lack of crew or the cramped interior. For IS-2 mod.1943, aim for the hull armor that curves and blends into the side, or aim at the turret cheeks. For mod.1944, only go for the turret as the hull is very thick and well sloped. For the ISU-122, aim at anywhere but the gun mantlet, as it often absorb shells or cause ricochet.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Good sloping armour on the front
  • High velocity high penetrating gun with APHE filler
  • Rather good gun depression
  • Not slow considering its armour and weight
  • Spaced out crew
  • Central engine could absorb penetrating front shots

Cons:

  • Armour is not 100% reliable. Fighting compartment can get penetrated by the IS-2 easily
  • It is barely ever going to reach its top speed (40 km/h or 25 mph)
  • Side armour is quite bad
  • Depressing the gun all the way will open roof for the breech, possibly exposing crew to strafing fire.

History

After the IJA compared Russian and German tanks during 1943 and the shock of encountering the US M4 Sherman, they decided to design tanks with more powerful guns to destroy tanks rather than for supporting infantry. Like other Japanese self-propelled guns, Ho-Ri was not equipped any weapon to anti-infantry. The design of Ho-Ri was based on the hull of the Chi-Ri, and with a powerful 105mm gun mounted in the casemate.

A prototype was completed by August 1944 and five more models were to be completed in 1945, but production was halted due to the industrial damages and resource shortage from the war effort.[1]
