Fine Molds 1/35 IJA Tank Destroyer Type3 "HONI-3"
The Type 3 Ho-Ni III was planned by the Army Weapons Administration Headquarters in 1943 as a seven-and-a-half (7 cm and a half = 75 mm) gun tank. Based on the set of seven-centimeter semi-self-propelled artillery [Honi I] that has already been deployed in actual battle, in addition to the characteristics of a conventional artillery tank whose main task is to control enemy positions, it has anti-tank combat capability that can counter powerful enemy tanks. Using the chassis of the Type 97 medium tank, it had a fully protected battle room that was fixed but well armored. The main gun is equipped with a Type 3 75 mm AA tank gun based on the Type 90 field gun, and was expected to be a tank that can destroy the US Army M4 tank from the front at a distance of 600m.
