Type 94 (70 mm)
|This page is about the Japanese tank cannon Type 94 (70 mm). For other uses, see Type 94 (Disambiguation).|
Based on the Type 92 70 mm battalion gun, the Type 94 70 mm was specifically made for the Type 95 Ro-Go. As a light howitzer, this gun was meant as an infantry support gun more than anything else. While it regularly fired HE and hollow charge, the Type 94 also had some separate shells developed for it, being APHE and a better hollow charge (HEAT).
