Description

The TKX is a rank VII Japanese medium tank with a battle rating of 11.0 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced in Update "Fire and Ice".

Developed soon after the Type 90 to supplement and replace the aging Type 74s and Type 90s. The TKX was designed between 2002 to 2009 until it was adopted in service in 2010 as the Type 10. Its primary function was to be lighter than the Type 90 with an equally effective armour, to access most Japanese infrastructure without hitting the weight limit and a bigger emphasis on C4I which couldn't properly be fitted into the Type 74s and Type 90s.

Describe armour protection. Note the most well protected and key weak areas. Appreciate the layout of modules as well as the number and location of crew members. Is the level of armour protection sufficient, is the placement of modules helpful for survival in combat? If necessary use a visual template to indicate the most secure and weak zones of the armour.

Notes:

  • Shells are modeled individually and disappear after having been shot or loaded.
  • Rack 2 is a first stage ammo rack. It totals 14 shells and gets filled first when loading up the tank.
  • This rack is also emptied early: the rack depletion order at full capacity is: 2 - 1.
  • If you pack 15 (+20) shells, it will keep the hull empty of ammo.
  • Simply not firing when the gun is loaded will move ammo from rack 1 into rack 2. Firing will interrupt the restocking of the ready rack.

Usage in battles

Describe the tactics of playing in the vehicle, the features of using vehicles in the team and advice on tactics. Refrain from creating a "guide" - do not impose a single point of view but instead give the reader food for thought. Describe the most dangerous enemies and give recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of the game in different modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Small profile
  • Autoloaded 120 mm cannon
  • Great mobility

Cons:

  • Poor armour
  • Slow elevation/depression speed

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the vehicle and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Vehicle-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the vehicle's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
