The Type 95 Heavy Tank was the final version of the Japanese multi-turreted designs in commission during the time periods of World War I and World War II.[1] Modeled from Axis German and Italian tank designs, this tank featured 2 turrets, the main armament being a 70mm cannon, and its secondary turret mounting a 37mm gun and two 6.5mm machine guns.[1] Only the prototype was ever produced, in 1934.[1]
