About Type 89 I-Go
Type 89 I-Go was a design for a tank submitted by the Imperial Japanese Army to the Imperial General Headquarters as a potential replacement for its Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tank.
A prototype was built, but it never saw combat. The Type 89 I-Go combined features from both Western and Eastern tanks of the era, which led to its being dubbed “a child of both sides." The Type 89 I-Go also had lower speed, yet better armor protection than the Chi-Ha.
Wiki Type 89 I-Go
The Type 89 medium tank I-Go (八九式中戦車 イ号, Hachikyū-shiki chū-sensha I-gō) was a medium tank used by the Imperial Japanese Army from 1932 to 1942 in combat operations of the Second Sino-Japanese War, at Khalkhin Gol against the Soviet Union, and in the Second World War. The Type 89B model was the world's first mass-produced diesel engine tank. The tank was armed with a short-barrel 57 mm cannon for knocking out pillboxes and masonry fortifications, and proved effective in campaigns in Manchuria and China, as the ChineseNational Revolutionary Army had only three tank battalions to oppose them, which consisted primarily of Vickers export models, GermanPanzer Is, and ItalianCV33tankettes. The Type 89 was a 1920s design medium tank, built to support the infantry, and thus lacked the armor or armament of 1940s generation Allied armor; it was regarded as obsolete by the time of the 1939 battles of Khalkhin Gol, against the Soviet Union. The code designation "I-Go" comes from the katakana letter [イ] for “first” and the kanji [号] for "number". The designation is also transliterated Chi-Ro and sometimes "Yi-Go". Read more
