Japan medium tanks

Japanese Medium Tanks update themselves as ranks goes up: better armour, better guns while keeping decent mobility (~40 km/h max speed). This specific line illustrates very well the traditional and conservative tank doctrine as every tank from rank 1 to 3 has the same silhouette: flat armour to the front, hull-mounted machine-gun, fully-rotating turret with flat plates all around, cupola to the right hand side, good post-penetration damage, average penetration, etc. The fact that most of the medium tanks in these ranks share the same Chi-Ha chassis doesn't help matters. Playing this line feels like always driving the same tank while it evolves to match its foes. This routine is only broken by a lone Sherman in the middle of rank 3 and returns back to Japanese designs in rank 4. Beyond that point, Japanese medium tanks are well-rounded machines with large ammo loadouts and good mobility. Those later ground vehicles use license-made guns and ammo while introducing new features such as hydraulic suspension.
