  • Flight characteristics heavily depend on the mode you play in.
  • While stat card states the max range is 1,800 m, in reality, it is less due to the missile losing fuel making course corrections. The resulting effective range is closer to 1,600 m.

Machine guns

The Type 60 ATM comes equipped with a coaxial 12.7mm M2HB Browning machine gun and a smaller 7.62mm Browning machine gun. The 7.62mm is virtually useless, and can sometimes come in handy for clearing some debris. The 12.7mm machine gun helps to deter any enemy aircraft due to the weak armour on the top of the vehicle.

Usage in the battles

The Type 60 ATM struggles in close quarters and is completely unsuited for urban battlefields. When playing the Type 60 ATGM consider all your flanking routes as your high damage potential can be most effectively harnessed in these environments. Avoid all major sight-lines, and pick your targets carefully. The cover is your best friend, finding positions, where you can scout enemy vehicles for your team, can often be more beneficial than attempting to kill enemy tanks.

The Type 60 ATM often plays out as a support vehicle instead of a tank destroyer.

The Type 60 ATM's biggest threats in battle are many. Avoid all vehicles at all costs to prevent dying; almost every shell at your BR will kill you with ease. The vehicle will often face front when you fire where 3 of your crew are crammed together, 2 of which are the gunner and driver.

Pros and cons


  • Good manoeuvrability
  • Type 64 ATGM's provide exceptional firepower
  • Upwards facing launchers can allow for behind cover firing, however, this means there's a minimum range
  • High crew count
  • Has scouting


  • Very limited main ammunation
  • Slow missile speed
  • Need a visual target for accurate hit, otherwise the missile goes anywhere
  • Can't move while the missile flies to the target
  • Need a certain range for effective hit
  • Very long reload after each missile is fired
  • Missiles tends to be sometimes inaccurate
  • Highly visible profile, with the sore Japanese green and tall design
  • Little to no armour, most shells immediately destroy this vehicle
  • Limited maximum speed to 38 kph along with mediocre mobility


Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ground vehicle in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too big, take it to a separate article, taking a link to an article about the vehicle and adding a block "/historical reference" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/Name-vehicles/historical reference) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to include links to sources at the end of the article.


An excellent addition to the article will be video guides, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
